Italian design firm Guccio Gucci S.p.A. has won 182 domain names in a UDRP.
This is one of the highest number of domain names transferred in one UDRP. However, Gucci is used to these kind of cases. In June,2013, Gucci also won the rights to 165 domain names in a single UDRP,such as : bestguccijapan.com, globalguccijapan.com, guccihick.com, guccihomebiz.com and oneguccijapan.com.
The case was filed against Brian E. Nielsen of “Boise, New York”. There doesn’t appear to be a city of Boise in New York, and Gucci claimed the whois information was bogus. It also alleged that some of the domain names were used to sell competitors’ goods. Whomever actually owns the domain names did not bother to respond to the case.
All of the domain names followed the pattern GucciBy____jp.org, such as guccibyhabitjp.org, guccibyhelmetjp.org and guccibyillustratejp.org.
The full decision is published on World Intellectual Property Organization’s website.
Gucci just won the rights to 182 domain names in a single UDRP. The complaint was filed with the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center on November 13,2013 against Brian E. Nielsen of “Boise,New York”.
