Resolution Canada Case No. 1151, May 23, 2014

Domain name : <grandmarnier.ca>.


Registered Canadian trademark for GRAND MANIER; the disputed domain name <grandmanier.ca> resolved to pay-per-click site with links to alcoholic beverages, cocktails and such like. Respondent did not defend the Complaint. A clear case of confusing similarity, bad faith registration and no legitimate interest.
