#374 - wd40.ca and wd-40.ca - TRANSFER GRANTED

The Complainant owns the WD-40 trademark (registered in Canada since 1962,) and does its part to help bring an end to squeaky doors across Canada, through the use of its highly popular lubricant/spray.

The Panel held that the Domain Names were registered in bad faith because the Registrant set up websites offering visitors to join Facebook, and make quick money by using Bitcoin. Sounds too good to be true. The Panel agreed that using the Complainant's trademark for illegal means is bad-faith in general.
