Thursday, August 29, 2019 - TRANSFER GRANTED

The Complainant is a shisha tobacco producer, and owner of the registered trademark AL FAKHER (registered since March 12, 2010).  The Registrant registered the Domain Name in July, 2011, and invites visitors to its showroom in Concord, Ontario. 

The Panel found that the Registrant has no legitimate interest in the Domain Name, because it is creating the false impression that it is an official or authorized dealer.  The Panel found that the Domain Name was registered in bad faith because the Registrant is a competitor of the Complainant, and it was obviously furthering its own interests using a known registered trademark, without permission.
