za: Domain name rules ‘are working’

Two South African companies fighting over the domain name mrplastic.co.za have been the first to resolve a dispute under the ZA Domain Name Authority’s new dispute resolution procedures. The dispute was about the complainant, Mr Plastic, who had used its name and a flag logo for 27 years. Mr Plastic Mining & Promotional Goods has used the same logo for 18 years, but was first to register the internet domain name. The panel found that both companies had established a right to the name, and the complainant lost the case. So now the complainant has registered the domain name mrplastics.co.za – with an “s”.
