SAO PAULO — The company that runs adult live cam sites LiveJasmin.com and Jasmin.com was successful in a recent cybersquatting case argued before a WIPO arbitrator.

The website at the center of LiveJasmin’s complaint was Jasmin.cc, a site registered in May 2013 that currently resolves to a parked page.

LiveJasmin’s attorney, Marc Randazza of Randazza Legal Group, however, argued that the disputed domain name was previously used in connection with a website offering redirects to the live cam giant’s competitors.

Randazza also argued that LiveJasmin has an 11-year-old trademark in the U.S. for the brand, and that the respondent in the claim, Dragos Neagu of Giurgiu, Romania, has no rights to the domain name with the .cc country code top-level domain address (.cc is the ccTLD for Cocos [Keeling] Islands, a territory of Australia).

Without a formal response from Neagu, WIPO arbitrator Wilson Pinheiro Jabur ruled on the merits of the case, finding for LiveJasmin’s parent company, Duodecad IT Services, and ordering the domain name transferred.

“Respondent used the disputed domain name in a clear attempt to attract internet users to its website by creating a likelihood of confusion among the consuming public as to the source, affiliation or endorsement of the respondent’s infringing services and the complainant’s website and services,” Jabur said in his ruling.

Randazza told XBIZ that the legal victory was a significant one, particularly because LiveJadmin is one of the top live cam companies in the adult entertainment space.

“Live Jasmin has one of the strongest and most respected brands in the adult industry globally,” he said. “We are delighted to of been able to assist them in protecting their intellectual property rights and managing their brand.”
