WHILE DISSENTING PANELIST TELLS IT LIKE IT IS
A corporate battle between Canadian company Geac Computer
and NEWTEC Consulting Group has spilled onto the ICANN UDRP
battlefield. A split panel has transferred to the Geac.net
domain but not before Milton Mueller, the dissenting
panelist, states that "If the truth be told, the majority
Panelists have allowed their over-solicitude for trademark
rights to draw them into taking sides in what US slang (for
which there is no adequate substitute) would term a "pissing
match" between two hostile business competitors. This case
reflects petty animosities between businesses, and has
little to do with domain name rights. A proper application
of UDRP would discourage these types of cases from being
contested." Decision at
Optimation New Zealand
