Thank you for your question.

Is she merely "cyber-squatting" on this name and essentially just sitting on it, or does she use the name for her own company or other uses?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
she is simply sitting on it. Louis.. Cyber-squatting.

Thank you for your follow-up.

In that situation you would have grounds to file suit against her and attempt to use the courts to take the property from her when she's not utilizing it. I will say that such a lawsuit will cost you far more money than $1500. You do have the right to demand attorney fees should you file suit, but depending on the financial situation of the other person, you may end up spending more money on legal fees then you will ever get back from this person and even if you prevail, it will end up costing you more. So while you do have a legal right to demand this URL from her, it will be far more cheaper for you to pay the $1500 and simply get the right directly.

Good luck.
