South African company fails to get domain from Argentinian registrant via UDRP

Two companies using the initials “ABSA” in their respective names, hold trademarks – albeit, in different countries.

Who gets the domain?

The question was raised when ABSA Group Limited of Gauteng, Republic of South Africa, fired up its lawyers to gain control of the domain name absainsurance.com.

The Respondent in this UDRP is Alejandro Angel Bleuzet, Grupo ABSA S.A. of Ciudad de Buenos Aires, Argentina, who also uses the ABSA as a business and an acronym for Angel Bleuzet Sociedad Anonima.

In their defense, the Respondent didn’t mince their words, strongly defending their right to register and use the domain name, without needing explicit permission from a company with no presence in Argentina.
