    Company was “factually misleading” and committed “egregious overreaching”.

    Brooksburnett Investments Ltd, which sells clothing under the Incanto brand, has been found to have committed reverse domain name hijacking in a dispute over the domain Icanto.com.

    The company uses the domain name Incanto.eu.

    A three-person World Intellectual Property Organization panel did extra research to figure out if the Complainant was providing the entire truth. It decided that the Complainant didn’t show that the domain owner registered the domain in bad faith and didn’t prove that the owner lacked a legitimate interest in the domain.

    Amusingly, the Complainant pointed to another UDRP filed against the domain owner as proof that he was a cybersquatter–but the panel in that case found in the domain owner’s favor.
