Company tried to upgrade from .dk to .com.
Domain name attorney John Berryhill has successfully defended domain investor Sahar Sarid’s domain name NTI.com in a UDRP.
The complaint was brought by NTI Cad Center A/S, which uses the Danish country code domain name NTI.dk.
A three-member Czech Arbitration Court panel found that the complainant’s NTI did not have substantial notoriety and that there are lots of companies that use the initials NTI. It also noted there was no evidence that Sarid’s company (Ashanti) had the complainant in mind when it registered the domain name.
Ashanti asked for a finding of reverse domain name hijacking, but the panel said it saw no evidence of harassment or an attempt to mislead the panel.
