The Complainant, The Toronto-Dominion Bank is the second largest bank in Canada and owner of the TD trade-mark.  The Panel found that the Domain Name was confusingly similar to the TD mark, in part because the words mobile banking are descriptive and reinforce the likelihood of confusion.  The Panel found the Domain was registered in bad faith, because the web site prominently displayed the following text: “Would you like to buy this domain?” and large letters below: “ON SALE”.  The Panel inferred that it would be hard to imagine the sale transfer price would be lower than the relatively small registration fees.
