UK Court on Yoyo Email Ltd. UDRP decisions : Unable to appeal

Directnic

The last time we heard from the illustrious Yoyo Email Ltd. with regards to UDRP decisions, was in late July, in the case of 118500.email.

Since then, the British company carried on with several additional UDRP cases – all lost – notably for these domains:

But even these losses aren’t the worst news for the British company alleging to be building an email notification service; the British High court has just declared itself unfitting to “act as an appeal or review body” in the case of a group of contested domains, rbsbank.email, rbs.email, natwest.email and coutts.email.

According to Out-Law.com and its intellectual property law specialist Rebecca Mitton of the Pinsent Masons law firm, the High Court’s judgment is important as it means decisions taken in accordance with the Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) can be considered binding with no right of appeal to UK courts.

The judge also ruled that Yoyo Email Ltd. was liable for passing off by registering the four domain names featuring RBS trademarks in its own name.
