Kestenberg Siegal Lipkus LLP represented Oakley Inc. and was successful in transferring the Domain Names (OAKLEYSUNGLASSESFORSALE.CA, OAKLEYSUNGLASSESSTORE.CA, OAKLEYSUNGLASSESCHEAP.CA) to their rightful owner, Oakley Inc.

The Complainant is Oakley Inc., a very well-known manufacturer of sunglasses and other apparel. Oakley's uses a large portfolio of trademarks in Canada and spends significant monies promoting their brand through various advertising mediums. The Registrant in China registered the domain names on June 5, 2012 and the Complainant filed its complaint on May 22, 2013. The Registrant did not respond. Of particular interest in this Complaint was the panelist's helpful comments regarding the confusingly similar domains/web sites that sell counterfeit merchandise.
