The European private equity firm Permira won the domain Permira.in in an INDRP case. The company owns an Indian trademark for PERMIRA.
The respondent's actions seem a little suspicious to me:
The Respondent has stated that it has provided its own name in order to protect the identity of the actual owner, as a privacy service to the registrant. However there is no evidence produced by the Respondent to substantiate its claims. Neither has the Respondent come forward to reveal the identity or contact details of the so-called "real owner".
I'm curious, are proxy registration companies compelled to reveal the real owner if legal papers are served? Does anyone know?
The Arbitrator also took into account that this same respondent was involved in an UDRP case where the WIPO Panel stated:
" Respondent has deliberately allowed itself to he used as a front 'for an undisclosed registrant who has elected to remain in the shadows'' The parties here appear to be suppressing the so-called "shadow figure", or the " true owner" of the domain name, if at all one exists
