In an article titled David beats Goliath in domain-name dispute, USAToday reports on the case of Gopi Mattel. Gopi successfully beat Mattel Inc’s assualt on this mattel.org domain name. Mattel Inc. claimed it was trademark infringement and even claimed that Gopi had changed his last name to Mattel solely to register the domain.
The artibration panel found in favor of Gopi. Gopi introduced two damning claims: first, Mattel Inc waited 4 years after Gopi registered the domain name before complaining, and second, Gopi showed that he changed his last name to Mattel back in 1996 when he became a US citizen.
