“188” domains lost in UDRP.

Another day, another UDRP against domains that begin with the number “188.”

Once again, the Complainant is Cube Limited of Douglas, Isle of Man, a company that uses its 188 trademark to challenge the ownership of related domains; they’ve done so several times in the past.

This time around, the Respondent is Ri Biao Xie of Yun Fu, China. Cube Limited provides online betting services using the “188” mark.

The following 45 domains were involved in this UDRP:

According to the UDRP, the following elements were outlined:

European Union trademark registration no. 8390379 for the mark 188, applied for on June 26, 2009 for goods and services in International classes 9, 28, 41 and 42;

European Union trademark registration no. 8425324 for the mark 188BET, applied for on July 14, 2009 for goods and services in International classes 9, 28, 41 and 42;

UK trademark registration no. 3017215 for the mark 188BET, applied for on August 8, 2013 for goods and services in International classes 9, 28, 41 and 42;

Hong Kong, China trademark registration no. 302702655 for the mark 188BET, registered on August 12, 2013 for goods and services in International classes 9, 28, 41 and 42.

The disputed “.com” domain names were registered on August 27, 2015 whereas the disputed “.net” domain names were registered on August 22, 2015.

The disputed domain names direct to websites that display the Complainant’s 188 trademark, and most of them also display the Complainant’s logo.

The Respondent did not reply to the Complainant’s contentions.

Fabrizio Bedarida, sole panelist, pointed out earlier UDRP decisions involving the Complainant and their trademarks, and ordered the domains to be transferred.
