The Complainant established its case and the Panelists transferred the Domain Name to the Complainant.
The Complainant, Marshall Ventilated Mattress Company Limited was founded in 1918 and has extensively used a trade-mark prominently including MARSHALL MATTRESS. The Registrant never responded to the Complaint. On December 6, 2013, the Registrant, a manager of a mattress retailer in London, Ontario contacted the Complainant about the possibility of selling the Complainant’s mattresses, and on that same day registered the Domain Name. Despite demand, the Registrant never transferred the Domain Name which resolved to the Registrant’s www.cheapbeds ca web site to the Complainant. The Panelist found that the Registrant registered the Domain Name in bad faith because of the timing of the Domain Name registration, and because internet users would be enticed to purchase mattresses from cheapbeds.ca in a manner likely to deceive them.
