THE ISSUE

The success of the Jet2 holidays business has led other providers to piggy back on their success using very similar domain names.

 

HOW WE ACHIEVED OUR CLIENT’S GOAL

We acted for Jet2.com in relation to the recovery of five domain names acquired by a developer aiming to set up a rival travel service, and for trade mark infringement/passing off.  We filed UDRP proceedings at WIPO and Nominet to recover the domain names, but then the developer threatened an imminent launch of his website, so we filed for an interim injunction in the High Court.  The defendant conceded the domain names two days before the hearing.
