Air France Win WIPO Case

One of the more recently reported WIPO UDRP cases that caught my attention was in relation to airfrance-suck.com

The decision, which went against the registrant, makes for some interesting reading.

The salient points being:

  • The “suck” suffix can be a legitimate defence
  • A lot of “suck” or “sucks” related WIPO cases end up being ruled in favour of the trademark holder
  • If you’re going to register a “brandnamesucks.com” type domain you need to actually use it

You can read the full decision on the WIPO site
