Company argued site at Michaels.ca infringed its marks.

A Canadian appeals court has confirmed that crafts store chain Michaels (NASDAQ:MIK) should be awarded the domain name Michaels.ca.

The loser: a guy whose last name is Michaels.

David Michaels registered the domain name in 2001. In 2009 he started using the domain name to sell stuff online, and that’s where the trouble began.

It seems that the retailer was miffed at what it saw as the defendant trying to capitalize on confused internet users.
