Port Washington, New York (PRWEB) December 05, 2014
Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm long dedicated to protecting the rights of victims who have been injured by medications, medical devices, and consumer products, announces that a Notice of Decision of the National Arbitration Forum was reached on November 30, 2014, in Parker Waichman LLP v N/A (FA1410001584806).
Parker Waichman LLP learned that a domain name was in use by another law firm and that the name being used was significantly similar to one of its trademarked and domain names. Parker Waichman requested a transfer of the domain name, yourlawyerfl.com, from the other law firm, asserting Parker Waichman’s trademark rights in YourLawyer and YourLawyer.com.
The National Arbitration Forum arbitrated the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) action under which trademark-based domain name disputes are typically resolved by agreement, court action, or arbitration prior to a registrar canceling, suspending, or transferring a domain name.
Parker Waichman LLP’s allegations included that, yourlawyerfl.com is “confusingly similar to its trademarks,” YourLawyer and YourLawyer.com; the Respondent in this case does not have rights or legitimate interests in this domain name; and the Respondent registered and used the disputed domain name of yourlawyerfl.com in bad faith.
In this action, Parker Waichman LLP prevailed and the domain name—yourlawyerfl.com—was ordered transferred. The Panel was satisfied that Parker Waichman LLP established all three aspects under the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) policy and concluded that relief is granted and ordered that the yourlawyerfl.com domain name be transferred to Parker Waichman LLP. Debrett Gordon Lyons, Esquire, was the Arbitrator; the panelists were the Honorable Richard D. Rosenbloom, Judge (retired); the Honorable John Upchurch, Judge (retired); and Debrett G. Lyons.
