#UDRP against #Approve .me domain got denied

“The Respondent denies that the disputed domain name is confusingly similar to the Complainant’s registered trademark, noting that APPROVE ME has a descriptive meaning in relation to credit approval matters that it argues would not necessarily be associated with the Complainant. The Respondent further submits that it has rights and legitimate interests in the disputed domain name, which it claims to be using in connection with a bona fide online financial services platform. The Respondent states that it had not heard of the Complainant before it registered the disputed domain name and its corresponding company name, and that it only learned of the Complainant when it received the Complainant’s cease and desist letter in October 2014. The Respondent denies that it has acquired or used the disputed domain name in bad faith.”
