GWG Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: GWGH), which owns GWG Life, has been found guilty of Reverse Domain Hijacking by a panel at the World Intellectual Property Organization. The company filed a complaint July 12, 2016, in an attempt to grab the domain, gwg.com, which is owned by Jeff Burgar of High Prairie, Alberta, Canada.

The three-member panel handed up its ruling on October 13, 2016, saying the complainant was “motivated by making a claim that it knew or should have known after reasonable inquiries was baseless and … could not succeed.”
