ADMINISTRATIVE PANEL DECISION
Exotiq Properties Ltd. v. David Smart
Case No. D2009-1672
1. The Parties
The Complainant is Exotiq Properties Ltd. of Bali, Indonesia, represented by Cabinet Vidon – Marques & Juridique PI Dpt, France.
The Respondent is David Smart of Bristol, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, represented by Traverse Legal, PLC, United States of America.
2. The Domain Name and Registrar
The disputed domain name
3. Procedural History
The Complaint was filed with the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center (the “Center”) on December 8, 2009. On December 11, 2009, the Center transmitted by email to GoDaddy.com, Inc. a request for registrar verification in connection with the disputed domain name. On December 11, 2009, GoDaddy.com, Inc. transmitted by email to the Center its verification response confirming that the Respondent is listed as the registrant and providing the contact details. The Center verified that the Complaint satisfied the formal requirements of the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the “Policy” or “UDRP”), the Rules for Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the “Rules”), and the WIPO Supplemental Rules for Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (the “Supplemental Rules”).
In accordance with the Rules, paragraphs 2(a) and 4(a), the Center formally notified the Respondent of the Complaint, and the proceedings commenced on December 15, 2009. In accordance with the Rules, paragraph 5(a), the due date for Response was January 7, 2010. The Response was filed with the Center on January 7, 2010.
The Center appointed Michael J. Spence as the sole panelist in this matter on January 19, 2010. The Panel finds that it was properly constituted. The Panel has submitted the Statement of Acceptance and Declaration of Impartiality and Independence, as required by the Center to ensure compliance with the Rules, paragraph 7.
4. Factual Background
The Complainant operates websites associated with its business as a real estate broker. It has seven existing trade mark registrations including the word EXOTIQ and several pending. All of these include a device as well as the word EXOTIQ and several, except for an Indonesian registration and a Community Trade Mark (“CTM) on the trademark register of the Office for Harmonization of the Internal Market (OHIM), registration No. 004284444, registered February 23, 2006, post-date the registration of the disputed domain name. The Respondent operates a group of websites with domain names built around the word “naked” that generate affiliate revenue. In 2007, he registered the disputed domain name with the intention of creating a group of sites to generate affiliate revenue around the word “exotiq”. His stated intention is that these sites should operate in the fields of property, sex and gambling.
5. Parties’ Contentions
The Complainant claims that the disputed domain name is identical or confusingly similar with its marks; that the Respondent has no rights or legitimate interests in the disputed domain name; that the Respondent must at the time of registration have known of the Complainant’s marks; that his registration of the disputed domain name was therefore in bad faith; and that this is further evinced by his willingness to sell the disputed domain name to the Complainant.
The Respondent argues that the Complainant’s marks all include material in addition to the word EXOTIQ and that the word itself, as descriptive, is not something in which the Complainant has any existing rights; that he has been preparing to establish a group of sites to generate affiliate revenue around the word “exotiq” for approximately two years and that he therefore has a legitimate interest in the use of the disputed domain name; that his registration of the disputed domain name pre-dates the registration of the Complainant’s marks; that he was unaware of the Complainant’s business at the time of registering the disputed domain name and that his registration cannot therefore have been in bad faith; and that his offer to sell the disputed domain name came only in response to an offer to purchase made by the Complainant and that it cannot therefore be taken as evidence of an intention to trade in an identical or confusingly similar mark.
6. Discussion and Findings
A. Identical or Confusingly Similar
Noting that the word “exotiq” can be regarded as a phonetic rendering of the common dictionary word “exotic”, this Panel would expect that such a term would require considerable evidence of secondary meaning in order, without more, to become registrable as a trade mark, or indeed to be recognized as an unregistered trademark for the purpose of proceedings under the Policy. The Complainant has not presented any such evidence of secondary meaning in the relevant market in relation to the term “exotiq” in these Policy proceedings. The Complainant has however presented evidence of possessing trademark registrations for EXOTIQ (e.g., CTM registration No. 004284444 and Indonesian registration No. Bor.25146), which contain a figurative element (a flower appears to the left of the term “exotiq”. Accordingly, a question may arise as to whether these figurative marks (which do not seem to indicate disclaimers for the term “exotiq”) may satisfy the requirement that the Complainant show it has the relevant trademark rights for the term “exotiq,” apart from the graphic element. See e.g. Ville de Paris v. Salient Properties LLC, WIPO Case No. D2009-1279, and Minibar North America Inc. v. Ian Musk & GEMS Global Electronic Minibar Systems AS, WIPO Case No. D2005-0035.
However, in light of the Panel’s finding under the second element, it is unnecessary for this Panel to consider that question further here or to make a determination of whether “exotiq” a sufficiently distinctive or dominant element of the Complainant’s figurative mark such as to ground a finding whether the Complainant has trademark rights in the relevant term for the purposes of the present Policy proceedings.
B. Rights or Legitimate Interests
It is for the Complainant to establish, at least prima facie that the Respondent has no rights or legitimate interests in the disputed domain name (Croatia Airlines d.d. v. Modern Empire Internet Ltd., WIPO Case No. D2003-0455, Belupo d.d. v. WACHEM d.o.o., WIPO Case No. D2004-0110). Where a disputed domain name corresponds to a less distinctive mark or group of marks, this burden tends to be higher than it might otherwise be. Although each case must be assessed on its own merits and evidence, in general it is inherently more likely that a respondent may have a legitimate interest in using a more descriptive domain name. Given the phonetically descriptive nature of the term “exotiq”, the Respondent’s evidence that it has indeed registered several other domain names containing the term “exotiq” (seemingly in combination with other descriptive terms such as “exotiqgirls”, “exotiqgirls”, “exotiqrentals.” the relatively scant evidence of distinctiveness provided by the Complainant, and the Respondent’s prima facie plausible claim to a legitimate interest in the use of the name, the Panel finds that the Complainant has not discharged its burden to establish that the Respondent has no rights or legitimate interests in the disputed domain name.
As further support for the Panel’s finding, the Panel also notes the record includes an Office Action from the United States Patent and Trademark Office apparently sent to the Complainant in August of 2009 citing the refusal to register “exotiq” on the basis that it “merely identifies a characteristics or feature of applicant’s identified goods” and setting a six-month deadline for the Complainant to respond before the application is abandoned. In this light, the Panel finds the Respondent’s arguments as to the descriptive nature of the term “exotiq” to be plausible and in the circumstances finds that the Complainant has on balance failed in showing that the Respondent could rely on no legitimate interest related to the inclusion of the term “exotiq” in the disputed domain name.
In making this finding, the Panel does not necessarily exclude the possibility that the UK-based Respondent may have been aware of the Respondent’s property business and its CTM registered mark EXOTIQ, but on balance the Panel finds it more likely than not on the provided recorded that the disputed domain name was registered for its descriptive rather than its trademark value.
The Panel therefore finds, on balance, that the Complainant has not established the second element of paragraph 4(a) of the UDRP Policy.
C. Registered and Used in Bad Faith
Given the Panel’s findings on the second element of paragraph 4(a) of the UDRP Policy, it is unnecessary to consider the issue of bad faith.
For all the foregoing reasons, the Complaint is denied.

The nature of my practice causes me to read a lot of pretty funny emails. Most of the time they deal with a rich kid from Nigeria whose uncle just died and he needs you to send him $1 million dollars so he can get $500 million from the bank. Lately, I’ve been seeing more emails directed at attorneys. A couple of years ago a few attorneys got taken for similar scams. Here’s the latest incarnation:
My Name is Hajime Bada, President & CEO of JFE Steel Corporation. JFE Steel Corporation is a steel & chemical trading company. My Company currently has a claim against an American/Canada and European company for a breach of contract.
We wish to retain an attorney that will assist us in collecting funds owed to us by a deliquent Customer within your jurisdiction. We are of the opinion that once our presence is established in your state via a legal representative, our customer will have no option but comply with payment request to avoid legal action and litigation. We have all the documents supporting the case and we are ready to present it if we happen to go before the court of law to settle this matter. Please advice on your fees and retainer agreement and any other information that you would need to take on this case.
Thank you and I await your prompt response
JFE Steel Corporation.
No. 2-2-3 Uchisaiwaicho, Chiyoda-Ku,
So if you’re an attorney, business is down, and you get an email like this don’t get the urge to respond. It’s nothing but a targeted scam.
I’ve tracked a few of these emails back to computers in the U.S. which are surely hacked from somewhere in China, one of the former eastern block countries (who by the way treat hacking the same as a law abiding profession), and or somewhere in south America.
Part of our business is helping clients clean up infringing uses on Twitter and Facebook. We keep track of response times from all of the major social networking sites in order to gauge how long it’ll take to help a client get infringing material removed.
Facebook response times have consistently been significantly better than Twitter. Facebook usually responds to DomainNameAttorney.com requests within one day. This is fantastic considering the volume of infringement notices they receive. Twitter is slower than Facebook but that is to be expected with their fast growth.
Until now all domain names have been based on Latin letters e.g. A, B, C, D, etc. ICANN the equivalent of the UN for domain names is set to approve non Latin domain names. This is a good thing for those users that are not native to a Latin based language but it creates nightmares for in-house counsels and trademark attorneys trying to stop infringement of non arbitrary marks.
One of the key issues to be taken up by ICANN’s board at this week’s gathering is whether to allow for the first time entire Internet addresses to be in scripts that are not based on Latin letters. That could potentially open up the Web to more people around the world as addresses could be in characters as diverse as Arabic, Korean, Japanese, Greek, Hindi and Cyrillic — in which Russian is written.
Technically it’s also very difficult. “This is the biggest change technically to the Internet since it was invented 40 years ago,” Peter Dengate Thrush, chairman of the ICANN board, told reporters, calling it a “fantastically complicated technical feature.” He said he expects the board to grant approval on Friday, the conference’s final day.
The Domain Name Journal reported the hyphenated domain name hotel-reservation.com sold for $209,916 to a German based hotel reservation company. This sale along with dozens of others show that the value in domain name purchases has remained strong even in a down economy. The traffic generated from solid domain names will only increase in the future. Thus, many descriptive and keyword based domains are still undervalued vis a vis their corresponding level of search traffic.
