The Complainant established its case and the panelist therefore directed the transfer of to the Complainant.

The Complainant advertises and sells paper tissues, bathroom tissues, etc., with sales exceeding $200,000.00 in Canada. After the trade-mark was registered by the Complainant in Canada, the Registrant registered and began operating its domain name as a parked web site offering the Complainant’s competitor products, amongst other things.  A portion of the web site was dedicated to text advising the public the domain name was for sale.  As part of the bad faith analysis, the panel found the registrant was attempting to disrupt the business of the complainant by attempting to have the Complainant make an unsolicited offer for purchase of its domain name.
