The Complainant owns several MIDEA trademarks registered in Canada. Despite the Registrant's request to file a late response (albeit after the deadline), the panel refused to do so citing paragraphs 5.4 or 5.6 of the Rules.  Despite relying on the UDRP, the Panel found that the Domain Name was registered in bad faith because the registered mark had been well known and used for many years in Canada and was well known.  The Panel did not infer bad faith based on the evidence that the Registrant was inviting offers for purchase of the Domain Name.

#333 - - Domain Transferred

The Domain Name was registered on September 20, 2015.  The Registrant was using the Domain Name to offer for sale and sell competing products (wireless equipment with the brand SURE CALL). The Panel found bad faith because the Complainant had been selling equipment since 2000, and the Registrant was not licensed or authorized by the Complainant.
