#345 - whatsapp.ca - TRANSFER GRANTED

The Complainant owns one of the world's most popular messaging application services, with over 1 billion active monthly users. Its WHATSAPP trademark was registered in Canada in 2012. The Domain Name was registered in 2015. The Registrant did not respond to the Complaint. 

The Panel found that the Domain Name was registered in bad faith as (1) the Registrant acquired the Domain Name shortly after Facebook announced its acquisition of the Complainant, (2) following delivery of a cease and desist letter, the Registrant offered to sell the Domain Name for an amount in excess of its reasonable out of pocket expenses and (3) the Registrant has engaged in a pattern of this wrongful conduct, registering victoriasecret.ca, nordstrom.ca and celinedion.ca.
