Lockheed Martin Corporation loses domain case against cannabis site ukskunkworks.co.uk

Defence company Lockheed Martin Corporation has lost its attempt to gain control of a web address currently hosting a site devoted to cannabis paraphernalia according to The Register. The ruling on the .co.uk domain was an appeal from an earlier ruling heard under Nominet’s UDRP procedure. The domain ukskunkworks.co.uk is owned by UKSkunkworks Ltd, a company selling cannabis seeds and smoking paraphernalia related to cannabis. Lockheed Martin tried to gain control of the domain because it has in times of war operated a secret laboratory developing new products which it called Skunk Works. It owns several UK and community trademarks related to the term.http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/05/02/lockheed_martin_domain_case/
