Amazon.com wins domain names
Tuesday, October 4th, 2005
Amazon.com has won domain disputes involving 14 domain names it deemed were trademark violations. The domains included amazzone.com, amzaon.com, and amazln.com, among others. Unlike a recent Yahoo case, the registrant tried to defend some of his registrations.
I have a concern about the National Arbitration Forum issuing press releases about both the Yahoo and Amazon decisions. Would NAF have issued the press released if it had found in favor of the original registrants? If not, NAF’s goal of getting press exposure may sway its decisions.
