WIPO recently found in favor of C4S, preventing bad faith use of the ‘confusingly similar’ domain.
Cyberspace (February 22, 2022): Clips4Sale.com (C4S), the original and #1 downloadable video clips site, and adult industry attorney Corey D. Silverstein, the driving force behind MyAdultAttorney.com and Adult.Law, recently prevailed in a decision regarding the bad faith registration and potential use of the “confusingly similar” domain Clips4Crypto.com.
A complaint regarding Clips4Crypto was filed with the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization) arbitration and mediation center on November 23, 2021. After following proper procedure and conducting an in-depth investigation, WIPO concluded that the domain was registered in bad faith. WIPO thus ordered the domain Clips4Crypto be transferred to Clips4Sale on February 11, 2022.

“Although it is unfortunate my client was forced to pursue formal legal proceedings, we are pleased with WIPO’s decision in this case,” Silverstein said. “Clips4Sale will not tolerate the abuse of its intellectual property and will aggressively pursue all infringers.”
Per WIPO, GoDaddy.com – the service by which Cryps4Crypto was originally registered – must transfer ownership of the onerous domain to Clips4Sale by the tenth business day post notification.
