Scarinci Hollenbeck’s David Einhorn Decides Domain Dispute Involving Bill Gates’ Investment Co.
Author: Scarinci HollenbeckDate: May 26, 2021
David Einhorn, Partner and Chair of Scarinci Hollenbeck's Technology Law and Domain Name Dispute Resolution practice groups, recently served as arbitrator in a high-profile domain name dispute involving Bill Gates’ investment firm, Cascade Investment, L.L.C. Serving as a panelist for the National Arbitration Forum, Einhorn dismissed Cascade Investment’s cybersquatting complaint after finding that the company failed to demonstrate it possessed the necessary trademark rights.
Arbitration is generally available to recover a domain name if the owner of the domain registered it in bad faith, lacks legitimate rights, and has registered a domain name which is the same or confusingly similar to a registered trademark. In fact, when registering most domain names, registrants must agree to the mandatory arbitration of domain disputes. Once a complaint is filed, the claim is decided by a private arbitrator. If the complainant is successful, the domain name is transferred to the rightful owner.
