Nestle let Ozarka(.)com expire in 2002. Now it’s getting the domain name back.

Current owner was using the domain name in a bad way.

Don’t visit Ozarka(.)com…at least not yet.

Nestle Waters, through its entity Perrier, inadvertently let the domain name Ozarka(.)com expire way back in 2002. 16 years later, a National Arbitration Forum panelist has ordered the domain name to be transferred back to the water company.

Ozarka is a bottled water brand sold mostly in the south-central United States.

16 years is a long time to wait, and the domain has been transferred to many different people since then. So the reason Nestle decided to go after the name now might have something to do with how the domain name is being used by its current owner. When I visited the domain name, my antivirus software started throwing off alarm bells about a large amount of data being transferred from my computer. I don’t recommend visiting the domain.

According to Nestle, the current owner began forwarding the domain name to the typo ozaraspringwater(.)com in 2013, and the page had sponsored links to water companies.

The official site for Ozarka Water is OzarkaWater.com.

The full case decision is here.
