Ashley Furniture Wins Nine Domain Disputes in November

It looks like Ashley Furniture decided that too many third parties own domains that were confusingly similar to their trademarks. In eight (8) decisions, no response was filed by the Respondent. In each of those eight (8) decisions the Panel went through the three (3) step analysis required in the ICANN policies.  In the one decision where the Respondent provided a response, the Respondent consented to the transfer and the Panel decided to forgo the full analysis.
Ashley Furniture’s trademark portfolio includes, ASHLEY FURNITURE, ASHLEY HOMESTORES, ASHLEY FURNITURE HOMESTORES, A ASHLEY FURNITURE, DURAPELLA, and ASHLEY. These trademarks registrations serve as the driving force behind the domain disputes. In light of the number of disputes, it appears as though Ashley Furniture recognized the importance of enforcing trademark rights on the Internet.
