Earlier this week Safenames’ Domain Dispute department recovered the domain name fsecure.co.uk from a Milton Keynes organisation Global Publications Ltd by filing a domain dispute with Nominet, the registry for .UK. The Nominet case decided by Expert Margaret Briffa of BRIFFA Intellectual Property and Information Technology Lawyers; was a clear case of cyber squatting and misuse because the domain name with a well known trademark was being used for Pay per Click advertising. The arbitration expert determined that the domain name was registered in bad faith by the Respondent and also thwarted Global Publications Ltd’s assertions of Reverse Domain name Hijacking. The domain will be transferred into the Safenames account for the F-Secure Corporation; one of the world’s leading antivirus software companies.
