Don’t mess with the Escobar-brand

If there’s one person whose intellectual property you don’t wanna mess with, it’s Roberto De Jesus Escobar Gaviria, the brother of the now-late drug overlord Pablo Escobar.

Escobar Inc, the self-proclaimed rightful owner of the Pablo Escobar trademark, has won a $3 million legal dispute, obtaining ownership of the PabloEscobar.com domain.

The domain is currently inactive, but the company plans to kick off a website by 2020, where it will sell Pablo Escobar products and merchandise, including the notorious proprietary flamethrower.

In August 2019, Escobar Inc filed a cybersquatting claim with the US National Arbitration Forum, arguing that the previous owner of PabloEscobar.com was cybersquatting the domain name.

According to the decision, the domain owner was asking $3 million for the name. The National Arbitration Forum decided to transfer the domain to the rightful owner Escobar Inc.

We wonder whether it would have been wise for the previous owner of PabloEscobar.com to hold on to the domain name.
