The Complainant is a quick-selling service restaurant in the chicken segment, and owner of the family of registered Canadian trademarks, CHICK-FIL-A.  The majority of the Complainant’s restaurants are in the United States however it does operate in Calgary, Alberta. The Registrant failed to submit a substantive response, but did offer to transfer the Domain Name to the Complainant.

The Panel found that the Domain Name was registered in bad faith because the passive holding of a Domain Name prevents the rights holder from registering its trademark as a Domain Name, and ignoring cease and desist letters strongly supports a finding of bad faith.
