Chinese translation of well-known trademarks amount to cyber-squatting

CAC case n. 101931 – nuohua.com

In a recent decision before the Czech Arbitration Court, Novartis complained the registration and use of the Chinese (pinyin) transliteration of its well-known mark NOUHUA as .com domain name.

Roberto Manno, acting as the sole Panelist, decided the domain name was registered and used in bad faith according to the settled UDRP case-law. Moreover, the DN owner tried to sell the domain name for 1 million USD.
