The Complainant is the worldwide leader of children's entertainment goods and services, and owner of the DISNEY family of trademarks, registered in Canada as early as 1987. The Respondent's Domain Names forward to a variety of random websites other than disneystore.ca, which redirects to the Complainant's site. The Respondent did not respond to the Complaint.
The Panel found that the Domain Names were registered in bad faith since the Complainant's activities are well known, and this provides a suggestion of an improper motive in obtaining the registrations - including producing revenue through advertising and kickbacks from sites to which traffic is forwarded.
