Warner Bros. Entertainment wins dispute over ThunderCats.com domain name

ThunderCats Cartoon Network

With the return of ThunderCats back to television, the domain name ThunderCats.com has been ordered transferred to Warner Bros. by a single member panel of the National Arbitration Forum.

The respondent in the domain dispute was Equity LLC / Name Admin of New York.

On the point of “Registration and Use in Bad Faith”, although the Honorable Charles K. McCotter, Jr. (Ret.) who served as the panelist did not find that Equity LLC had ever attempted to sell the disputed domain name, McCotter did find that the domain had a competing nature because Equity LLC had posted links to websites and businesses which sell action figure goods in competition with Warner Bros.

Of course, there is much more to the decision than just the point of “bad faith”.
