A Chinese man has filed a lawsuit (pdf) alleging that someone stole the domain name from him.

Dong Huang filed an in rem lawsuit against in U.S. District Court in Virginia yesterday.

He says he acquired the domain on November 6, 2018, as an investment. According to the suit, the domain was stolen on or around November 12, 2021.

Historical Whois records suggest the alleged theft might have occurred earlier than that. The domain came out of Whois privacy in August, and the domain was transferred from GoDaddy to eName, before quickly being transferred to Alibaba.

Dong Huang values the domain at about $500,000.

Greenberg & Lieberman is representing the plaintiff in the case.
