French tech conference LeWeb loses challenge for domain name

Large European tech conference fails to obtain ideal domain name. French tech conference LeWeb has lost a domain dispute with the owner of LeWeb.com. The conference, which attracts 3,000 people, uses the domain name LeWeb.net. Conference organizers claimed that many of its attendees reported confusion when they visited LeWeb.com by mistake. This is no surprise — typing .com instead of any other top level domain name is a common mistake. The World Intellectual Property Organization panel denied the conference’s complaint, observing that LeWeb.com was registered well before the conference was founded. This would explain why it registered the .net version instead. Another interesting note: LeWeb’s complaint says it has French trademarks for leweb2 leweb2.com leweb2.fr and leweb3 leweb3.com. It doesn’t appear to own any of these domains: leweb2.com, leweb2.fr, and leweb3.com. ...
