The domain was registered on 13 June 2017, four years after Snap registered its Snapchat trademark.
Snap said the domain was “confusingly similar” to its Snapchat trademark, differing only by the generic term ‘adult’.
It also accused the original registrant of the domain of attempting to use the infringing domain name to “attract internet users to a website featuring adult-oriented content” for commercial gain.
Sole panellist Carolyn Johnson agreed with Snap, ruling that the addition of generic terms are “insufficient to defeat a test of confusingly similar”.
Johnson also found that the registrant had “actual knowledge” of Snap’s rights in the Snapchat trademark and that this was evidence of bad faith.
Finally, Johnson found that the registrant did not use adult-snapchat.com in connection with any form of goods and services for legitimate non-commercial or fair use reasons because the domain resolves to adult oriented content.
