Calgary - CyberMatrix Corporation, Inc of Calgary, Alberta has claimed victory over a lawsuit with MustNeed.com of Taipei, Taiwan over the cybermatrix.com domain. CyberMatrix had formally lodged a complaint against MustNeed.com on February 6, 2004 with the National Arbitration Forum. At dispute was the fact that MustNeed was merely squatting on the cybermatrix.com domain with the sole intention of selling it for profit, that MustNeed was benefiting from traffic that resulted from CyberMatrix customers mistyping the existing CyberMatrix domain of cyber-matrix.com, and that MustNeed was violating the CyberMatrix registered trademark of CYBERMATRIX. In accordance with ICANN's Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy CyberMatrix had to prove that the domain name registered by MustNeed was identical or confusingly similar to a trademark or service mark in which CyberMatrix had rights; and that MustNeed had no rights or legitimate interests in respect of the domain name; and the domain name was registered and was used in bad faith. On March 30, 2004 Hon. Carolyn Marks Johnson ruled that CyberMatrix had established all three elements required under ICANN Policy and ordered the domain to transferred to CyberMatrix Corporation. Hon. Carolyn Marks Johnson had given MustNeed 10 days to appeal and if no appeal was made cybermatrix.com was to be transferred over to CyberMatrix. Since no appeal was made, this transfer took place on the afternoon of April 9, 2004.
