Ticket Broker loses French Open domains
French Tennis organization awarded 13 domain names used by ticket broker.
A UDRP panel has ordered ticket broker Ticketfinders International LLC to transfer 13 domain names to Fédération Française de Tennis (FFT).
FFT is the governing body for tennis within France. It also holds trademarks for the French Open, which is also called the Roland Garros tennis tournament and is played at Roland Garros Stadium.
Ticketfinders didn’t formally respond to the complaint, and the single member WIPO panel ruled in FFT’s favor. Here are the domains that will be transferred:
Ticketfinders created web sites for each domain that offered tickets to the events.
