French Company Wants to Cancel Adwords Trademark, Hit with UDRP

French Company Wants to Cancel Adwords Trademark, Hit with UDRP

French company files to cancel one of Google’s trademarks, gets hit with UDRP over .mobi domain name. Google has filed a UDRP against the owner of a French trademark for “adwords” over his domain name ad-words.mobi. The domain owner, Francotel, LLC, has a French trademark for “adwords”, but Google has some as well. Francotel has also filed for cancellation of Google’s European Union trademark for “Adwords”, although it appears the company has filed a newer application for the mark. The domain name resolves to a page that states “Place your Ad with some Words here”. The bottom of the page says “don’t be the devil”, which may be a jab at Google’s slogan “Do no evil”. It will be interesting to see if the UDRP panel decides this case, or if they decide to punt to the courts. Further Reading: Lead Gen Company Reply!
