Consent to Transfer

As it is useful to keep at your fingertips cases to illustrate basic points in the arbitration process, we place on record another decision to the effect that when a Respondent gives consent to transfer the domain name to the Respondent, the panel will simply transfer the domain name and not proceed with the traditional UDRP analysis of the various elements that have to be proved.


The case is Scores Holding Company, Inc. v. jason davison, FA1403001551756 (April 26, 2014).


The decision makes reference to other decisions to the same effect , Boehringer Ingelheim Int’l GmbH v. Modern Ltd. – Cayman Web Dev., FA 133625 (Nat. Arb. Forum Jan. 9, 2003),  Malev Hungarian Airlines, Ltd. v. Vertical Axis Inc., FA 212653 (Nat Arb. Forum Jan. 13, 2004) and Citigroup Inc. v. Texas International Property Associates- NA NA , FA0806001210904 (Nat. Arb. Forum, Aug. 5, 2008).
