#237 - urbanlegal.ca - TRANSFER GRANTED

The Complainant is Urban Legal Recruitment Limited, an Alberta corporation. The Registrant is Craig Nadeau of Calgary, Alberta. 

The panel found that based on the additional evidence (Urban Legal invoices) submitted as well as the registered trademark URBAN LEGAL, that the Complainant had rights in the mark and the domain name was confusingly similar. Regarding the requirement of registration in bad faith, the panel found that the Registrant registered the domain to direct traffic to the Complainant's former employer and to prevent the Complainant from using the Domain Name. The panel found that the requirement for bad faith had been met and ordered the transfer.
