UDRP panel: UDRP is not universal remedy for online trademark abuse

06 October 2014

World Trademark Review

In two recent cases filed under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) before the


World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) (Plein v Webb (Case No D2014-0778) and Plein v Deruyter
(Case No D2014-0779)), a single-member panel has denied the transfer of the domain names
‘peopleincasinos.com’ and ‘supportpeopleinneed.org’ on the rather unusual grounds that they were not
confusingly similar to the complainant's trademark PLEIN, even though they both incorporated this
trademark in its entirety.
