The Complainant has been using the Queen's University at Kingston Ontario name since at least as early as 1905. Its official mark QUEEN'S was advertised in April 1985.  It has used the domain name since 2000. The Domain Name was registered in January, 2003.

The Registrant failed to respond to the Complaint.  The Panel found that the Registrant registered the Domain Name in bad faith and inferred that the sole purpose of registering the Domain Name was to bring it to the attention of the Complainant.  Additionally, the Registrant is a cyber-squatter and and owns several popular trademarks belonging to other brands.
