#207 - albertafoundationandconcretelifting.ca - TRANSFER GRANTED
Following David Chamber's CDRP complaint dismissed on July 7, 2012, Alberta Foundation and Concrete Lifting Ltd. commenced this proceeding for the same two domain names. The Complainant is not the owner of any registered trade-marks and therefore must prove use of its Mark prior to August 23, 2010 (date of registration of the Domain Names). The Complainant provided supporting documents, including City of Calgary Building permits, Yellow Pages advertisements, Annual Corporation filings and Province of Alberta and Banking records. This time, the panelist determined the Mark was in use. The Registrant did not respond to the Complaint and the panelist found this business was a competitor of the Complainant, and had no legitimate interest in domain names, given they both resolved to www.concretespecialistsltd.ca.
