The Complainant is Intertek Testing Services NA Ltd. The Registrant is Intertek Oil and Gas and/or Canada Oil & Gas Recruitment Agency and the disputed domain name is INTERTEKOIL.CA.

The Complainant established that its registered trademark INTERTEK is a Mark in which it had rights and that those rights pre-dated the registration of the domain name.

The Panel found two indications of bad faith: firstly, the Registrant's web site reproduces verbatim the content of various websites in the oil and gas industry. Secondly, when counsel for the Complainant sent the Registrant a cease and desist letter, the solicitor received a response that threatened to 'trace and kill' the solicitor.
