New Bergerber Man

Words Want to Be Free: Give Me a Long Enough Indian-Ethnicity Lever...

Case: D2001-0765


Complainant: Hindustan Lever Ltd

Respondent: Mr. Vikram Chachra

The Defense:

My purpose in registering the disputed domain name was to start a metal tools business in the United States.

'Hindustan' is the ancient term for India. Being of Indian ethnicity, I chose the name 'Hindustan’ as a reference to my ethnicity. The term 'Lever' by itself is a generic noun in reference to the mechanical nature of my proposed line of business, which is Metal Tools.

The End As I Know It: A Novel of Millennial Anxiety, by proprietor Kevin Shay, is now available in paperback.
