R?sidant britannique, William M. attaque la d?cision

Noms de domaine en .eu : le titulaire d'une marque ne
peut enregistrer un signe voisin de cette marque

Apr?s avoir utilis? plusieurs fois la proc?dure UDRP
pour r?cup?rer des noms de domaine, la soci?t?

d?cision relative ? un nom de domaine en .eu (d?cision

http://domaine.blogspot.com/2006/06/noms-de-domaine-en-eu-le-titulaire.html

L'usage d'un nom proche d'une marque, ? des fins
publicitaires, n'est pas consid?r? comme du
cybersquatting
Une proc?dure UDRP, la marque d'un voyagiste connu (au
moins en France), un d?fendeur cor?en : la combinaison
de ces ?l?ments laisse en g?n?ral deviner que le nom
du second sera transf?r? au premier. Tel n'est pas le
sens de cette d?cision ? propos de jettour.com

Sorkin et Pierre-Yves Gautier).
