2 new URS complaints were filed at the National Arbitration Forum for New gTLD domain names:
aeropostale.clothing (filed on the 17th of February)
bbva.guru (filed on the 19th of February)
Here are a few more details on the 2 new complaints:
The URS complaint was filed by US clothing company Aéropostale, Inc. that has its trademark registered with the Trademark Clearinghouse. The domain name was registered on the 5th of February from someone from Texas, USA.
The URS complaint was filed by Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria, S.A. that is a multinational Spanish banking group. BBVA is the second largest bank in Spain. BBVA is also registered with the Trademark Clearinghouse. The domain name was registered on the 5th of February from someone from Barcelona, Spain.
So because both companies were registered with the Trademark Clearinghouse, both got an alert as soon as the 2 domain names were registered and reacted with a URS complaint very fast.
Through the URS Procedure ICANN offers a lower-cost, faster path to relief for rights holders experiencing clear-cut cases of infringement caused by domain name registrations. The URS filling fee at the National Arbitration Forum is $375 for up to 14 domain names. The URS can only lead to suspension of the domain names. The URS will not provide the transfer of the disputed domain name to the trademark holder. If the trademark owner wants to take ownership of and use the disputed domain, it should instead file a UDRP complaint or other legal action.
