M&M Wins Cybersquatting Case
Mahindra & Mahindra has won a disputed Internet site case at World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) against a US-based person, who was using the name ‘Mahindra’ in an Internet domain.
Zach Segal was using the domain name ‘mahindraforum.com’, which, according to Mahindra was confusingly similar to its ‘Mahindra’ trademark.
Geneva-based WIPO, a part of the United Nations, has asked Segal to transfer disputed internet site to M&M. The ruling came after M&M filed a complaint before the UN agency on July 6 this year.
Cybersquatting is an illegal activity of buying and officially recording an address on the internet that is the name of an existing company or a well-known person, with the intention of selling it to the owner in order to make money.
