New Bergerber Man

Words Want to Be Free: We’re In The Attention Business!

Case: D2001-0541

Domain(s): attbusiness.com, attbusiness.org

Complainant: AT & T Corp.

Respondent: Caimmi Rappresentanze & Marketing Italia

The Defense:

...the Respondent says that "attbusiness" in the Domain Names stands for "attention business" and appears to argue that the Complainantís trade marks are not valid under international or Italian law as it is "not possible to consider a trade mark on word or more words together that are used in popular use, because these words are part of proprietary language of people".
