    French Tennis organization awarded 13 domain names used by ticket broker.

    FFTA 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:

    french-open-2012.com
    frenchopen2012.net
    frenchopen2013.net
    frenchopen2014.net
    frenchopen2015.net
    frenchopen2016.net
    frenchopen2017.net
    roland-garros-tickets.com
    roland-garros-2012.com
    roland-garros-2013.com
    roland-garros-2014.com
    2012-french-open.com
    2012frenchopen.com

    Ticketfinders created web sites for each domain that offered tickets to the events.
