Lotto Sport filed a cybersquatting dispute under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) against David Dent’s domain names LottoStore.com and LottoWorks.com. Lotto Sport is a sportswear manufacturer and has been operating under the LOTTO brand for over 40 years.
Lotto Sport won the case last year
Lotto Sport filed a UDRP with the World Intellectual Property Organization in 2016. After a while, David Dent acquired the two domain names from third parties for over $11,000. He registered the domain names for online gaming purposes, and he has been operating such a business since 2006. Lotto Sport Italia tried to take two ‘lotto’ domain names away from Dent.
After Lotto Sport Italia won the case last year, David Dent had the intention to transfer the two domains to the company. He was forced to defend his domains by filing a lawsuit. Dent filed for attorneys’ fees, with the court granting nearly the full amount. This Court will grant Plaintiff’s motion and award attorneys’ fees of $ 236,752.50.
