Passing off - Trade name - Internet domain names - Registration of company names as Internet domain names - Defendant registering numerous domain names for sale by online auction - Claimant alleging threatened passing off - Whether defendant acting in good faith.
In proceedings by which the claimant sought injunctive relief restraining the claimant from re-purchasing the domain name 'www.metalrax.co.uk', the court ruled that the defendant was unable to claim that he could re-purchase in good faith and therefore had no arguable defence to the claim. Accordingly, the claimant was accordingly entitled to the relief sought.
