Iran: Cybersquatter Squashed

August 13, 2015

The Administrative Panel, assigned for case number D0778-2015 at the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center, issued a decision in favor of Inter IKEA Systems BV, owner of the trademark IKEA, against Omid, IkeaIran for registering the domain name <ikea-iran.com>.

The Panel found that the domain name was confusingly similar to the trademark IKEA and that the defendant had no rights or legitimate interests with respect to the domain name, which was registered and used in bad faith.

In light of the above, the Panel ordered that the domain name be transferred to Inter IKEA Systems BV in accordance with paragraphs 4(i) of the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy and 15 of the Rules.
