We take great pride in our company name and what it stands for. It’s disheartening that a company would intentionally try to take advantage of our customers
Canton, MI (PRWEB) May 25, 2011
RepairClinic.com® was awarded ownership of the domain name “repairclinc.com” by the World Intellectual Property Organization in a legal case against Spoofy, Inc.
RepairClinic.com customers and potential customers who mistakenly omitted the last “i” when searching for “repairclinic.com” would be redirected to a website that listed sponsored links to competitors of RepairClinic.com, an illegal practice known as “typosquatting.”
RepairClinic.com filed a complaint with WIPO, case #D2011-0167, asserting that the confusingly similar domain name had been registered and used in bad faith, that Spoofy’s conduct was unethical, and that it would harm Repairclinic.com and its customers. “We take great pride in our company name and what it stands for. It’s disheartening that a company would intentionally try to take advantage of our customers,” said Chris Hall, RepairClinic.com president. “That is why we will take immediate action against anyone who engages in these unethical practices.”
On March 29, 2011, WIPO ruled in favor of RepairClinic.com and ordered that it be awarded ownership of the disputed domain name.
