#234 -,, et al.- TRANSFER GRANTED

The Complainant established its case and the Panel transferred the domain names to the Complainant.

The Complainant is Vanguard Trademark Holdings USA, LLC, the owner of the NATIONAL and ALAMO trade-marks, used in Canada in association with automobile renting services. The Complainant has used the NATIONAL trade-mark in Canada since 1950 and the ALAMO trade-mark in Canada since 1998. The Registrant registered the disputed Domain Names on February 15, 2012 and did not respond to this Complaint. Of note: the panelist found that the Domain Names were registered in bad faith partly because the web sites were disrupting the business of the Complainant - a section of the web sites were dedicated to links to the Complainant’s competitors.
