Case No. D2012-1281

Sughrue Partners Leigh Ann Lindquist and Kevin Smith successfully reclaimed 16 BARBIE domain names for Mattel Inc. by establishing that the registered domain names:

1) were “clearly” confusingly similar to Mattel’s “ Well-Known” BARBIE mark;

2) were registered in an effort to create a false impression of an association with Mattel;

3) were registered and being used in “Bad Faith”

The WIPO panel Ordered that 16 Domain names be transferred to Mattel.
