The complaint focused on three domains, googleptv.com, googlektv.com and googlegtv.com.
Google claimed that the owner of the domains did not have any rights or legitimate interests in the domains and they used the Google trademark without Google’s permission.
The domains offered services that compete with Google’s services, which, alongside the presence of third party malware on the sites, Google said was evidence of bad faith.
The domain owner did not respond to the contentions, leaving sole panellist John Upchurch in agreement with Google, finding bad faith as a result of several factors, including the fact that “several third party malware detection sites and antivirus scanners consider the websites associated with the domain names to be dangerous”.
Upchurch transferred all three domains to Google.
