#298 - scoutscanada.ca - TRANSFER GRANTED

In this second CDRP complaint requesting a transfer of the Domain Name, the Complainant provided evidence that it registered its trademark in 1993 giving it rights in the mark prior to registration of the disputed domain.

The Domain Name resolved to a website containing non-commercial content critical of the complainant. While the panel found that this was not a typical example of bad faith, the Registrant created a misleading impression by utilizing a domain name that would lead the public to think that this website was operated by the Complainant, which was sufficient to ground a finding of bad faith.
