The ecommerce company claimed that the infringing domain, amzonaws.com, was confusingly similar to its Amazon and AWS trademarks, and merely misspells the trademark by removing the second 'a'.
Amazon said that this, along with an offer from the original registrant, Rosie Noble, to sell the disputed domain, “helps evince bad faith”.
Noble has registered several confusingly similar domain names in the past and has previous adverse UDRP decisions against her. She did not reply to the UDRP proceeding.
Sole panellist Karl Fink agreed with Amazon, finding that the infringing domain was confusingly similar and that the worldwide fame of the Amazon and AWS trademarks means that Noble must have been aware of them before acquiring the domains, constituting bad faith.
