Recently, the US and EU saw a lawsuit about TM rights violation and transfer of domain name. The result of the case was the court’s decision to hand down a verdict in favor of the defendant since the proof provided by the plaintiff were not considered sufficient enough.

In the mentioned case a company that filed the lawsuit was earlier identified as MoneyDesktop. Later, in 2014, it gained a new name of MX Technologies and started providing software for financial institutions. Before this company never had had an attempt to resolve any similar disputes that centered around TM-based domain names in the US or EU.
It was the domain name mx.com that the dispute was all about. The domain name was registered on March 5, 2019 and passed to the defendant on May 20, 2019. According to the defendant’s unofficial statement and apology, the domain name was not in their ownership anymore. Consequently, the defendant party was hoping that the dispute could be resolved to the mutual satisfaction of both parties. In addition, they provided a letter from the registrar to prove that they no longer have the authorization to manage the domain name mx.com.
After examining the provided evidence, a procedural order was issued by the court. It offered the plaintiff to look for some other variants to settle their dispute on a domain name and the defendant to transfer a domain name in the US or EU. Nevertheless, the procedural order was not followed by the defendant.
