The Complainant is a leading retailer of footwear and related accessories and opened its first store in Canada in 1997.  It owns a family of trademarks registered in Canada for use in association with shoes or the retail sale of shoes.  The Complainant's sales between 2008 and 2011 are in excess of 180 million dollars per year.

The Domain Name was registered in 2008 and is parked as a pay-per-click site. The Panel found that the Domain Name was registered in bad faith because internet users that visit the site may believe there is an affiliation, endorsement or approval by the Complainant.
