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
