The Complainant, Kohler Co. has used the KOHLER trademark in Canada since 1873 in association with various household and commercial products including bathtubs. The Registrant's website forwards users to firstpowergenerators.com, which offers generator products from the Complainant's competitor(s). The Domain Names were not registered until June, 2016, long after the Complainant established trademarks registrations and in Canada. The Panel found that the Domain Names were registered in bad faith because the Registrant's mark, FIRST POWER GENERATORS and the products on its site belong to competitors of the Complainant.
