RE: [nc-udrp] gnso.org
Excellent hypothetical. I would like to add a couple of questions to shed some additional light into your question to John, as I believe this hypothetical is actually a very useful tool for the Task Force to analyze.
Under the current UDRP, the claimant would have to establish trademark rights in the mark to prevail in a UDRP proceeding. It is my understanding that the GNSO is not yet in existence, so could you please advise me of any goods and/or services in which the mark GNSO has been used prior to John's domain name registration.
In light of several UDRP decisions in which the complainant failed to properly demonstrate rights in the mark, could you please provide any insight into your hypothetical question to John as to who the complaint would be?
