VB Partners has successfully defended the interests of online English school SkyEng in a WIPO arbitration over domain name re-registration.

According to VB Partners, SkyEng “found a number of websites with domain names that are completely identical to its brand and offer similar services. It turned out that they were registered by a former employee in order to attract users to their websites, creating a deceptive resemblance to a well-known brand. Such violations not only cause losses due to the loss of part of the profits but also damage the reputation of [SkyEng].” According to the firm, its lawyers proved “the illegal purpose of domain name registration and [WIPO] reached a decision that obliges the registrar to re-delegate them in favor of [SkyEng]."

The VB Partners team was led by Partner Oleksandr Lukyanenko.
