#342 - KOODOTEL.CA - transfer granted

The Complainants, Telus Corporation and Indeed Canada Corp., own the KOODO trademark (registered since April 2014) and offer telecommunication services including postpaid and prepaid wireless voice and data services, respectively. 

The Registrant registered its Domain Name in May 2017 and offer "black market" mobile phone plans to its customers (where third parties switch users phone plans to provinces in which less expensive rates are available). 

Although there was a small disclaimer on the website, the Panel found it was clearly intended to be overlooked (bad faith), and concluded that there was no evidence of any personal or business interest in the Domain Name (no legitimate interest).
