SAP,a software giant has lost another domain name case after it has lost and arbitration case for the domain name SAP-Microsoft.com. earlier this year.
The company wanted the domain name Unisap.com,which has been used by a provider of SAP consulting services for almost a decade.
«The Panel has also considered the purpose of the UDRP, namely to prevent the abusive registration of domain names. The Panel cannot, on the present record, confidently say that the Respondent has engaged in cybersquatting…
In these particular circumstances, the Respondent could be said to be providing legitimate services from the disputed domain name, under the Unisap brand. In the Panel’s view, this is enough to tip the finely balanced scales in the Respondent’s favour, on the provided record in this particular case.»
Also,the arbitrator said that companies that provide services related to a trademarked product should not use the trademark in their name.
