Hull Barrett is pleased to announce it has secured a major victory for one of our clients, an automobile dealership, against a cybersquatter who registered two domain names with bad faith and intent to profit from them. Timothy E. Moses, head of Hull Barrett’s Intellectual Property practice group, represented the automobile dealership and was able to provide evidence that an individual had registered two domain names that were related to the client’s personal name and business. Mr. Moses further alleged that the individual had actual knowledge of our client’s mark and registered the disputed domain names in bad faith for personal profit and created a parked website with links to third-party websites who were in direct competition with our client. On behalf of Hull Barrett’s client, Mr. Moses requested that the domain names be transferred. The National Arbitration Forum agreed and found the individual had no right to or legitimate interest in the two domain names and that our client had successfully satisfied the elements of the internet corporation for assigned names and numbers policy.
