Good quality watches are not cheap and the companies that make them have a constant battle against fraudsters of all kinds. People typo squatting their name obviously doesn’t help.
Breitling is a very well known brand of watch. They own breitling.com.
Someone else owns bretling.com. Notice the difference? There’s only one letter in it and someone typing quickly or who can’t spell …..
The WIPO decision goes into the trademarks held by Breitling (plus they’ve been around since 1884 anyway!) and shows how the other domain met the UDRP test (ie. confusion etc.,)
What is interesting is that the domain holders actually replied, which isn’t that common.
