CMM’s Intellectual Property team scored a win for our client in a matter before the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), a United Nations agency and the global forum for IP services. CMM opposed a challenge to our client’s use of a web address by the website’s former owner. The WIPO panel found that we established that there was compelling evidence that the former owner had abandoned its trademark rights and that our client had not acted in bad faith in using the address. This victory was great news for our client, for whom use of the web address was critical.
