The Complainant owns the BUG-A-SALT trademark registered in Canada. The Complainant uses the mark in association with hand-operated bug killing sprayers that shoot salt. The Panel found that the Domain Name was registered in bad faith because the website purported to advertise and sell the Complainant’s products through an online shop at the website to which the Domain Name resolved immediately after registration for a short period of time. Of note: The Complainant argued that the Registrant had a pattern of wrongful conduct - ie - setting up websites and then disabling them shortly thereafter.
