Battle of Canadian Domainers: DNF.com sues DNF.ca
Adam Dicker, owner of popular domain name forum DNForum.com is both an established domain entrepreneur and a Canadian.
For almost a decade, Adam provides thousands of domain owners with the digital arena to exchange ideas and to buy and sell domains.
It came as a big surprise that a former DNForum member and fellow Canadian launched a similar domain forum on DNF.ca
Adam Dicker owns both DNF.com and DNForum.ca along with trademarks for “DNforum.com” and “DNForum.com – The Place to Talk Domains.”
Today, Adam announced that anyone who felt misguided by the resemblance and functionality of the DNF.ca web site is invited to come forward via email:
Confusion between dnf.com and dnf .ca ?
Please email me at [email] if you were at all confused with dnf.com and the domain forum that opened with a similar name and topic at dnf .ca
Confusion would include that you thought we owned it or felt it was part of dnf.com or an extension of dnforum.com
This is for an upcoming court case that has been filed.
Capitalizing on one’s marks, fame and effort is valid reason for litigation, and Adam Dicker is doing exactly that, in order to protect his brand and business.
Definitely not good news for the other party as the legal proceedings will be held in their native country of Canada.
