Anyone who is in the domain industry is likely well acquainted with the name, Howard Neu. Howard is a long-time attorney who has specialized in trademark and intellectual property law, and was among the first lawyers to begin including online contracts and domains in his practice. He has been a defender of domain owners’ rights since the late 1990’s, and his staunch support of online freedom can be easily detected when reading his numerous posts on the subject of the web, personal liberty and legal protections.
In fact, one of Howard’s most recent domain legal victories came while defending Rick Schwartz’s domain, saveme.com, in a UDRP battle with a South American trademark attorney, Marcio Mello Chaves, whose legal firm had filed their complaint with the World Intellectual Property Organization. Howard’s legal briefs and case work resulting in Chaves not only losing his claim, but also being labeled as a Reverse Domain Hijacker by WIPO. The story was covered in mainstream and domain industry media, alike.
