Multiple Complainants in URS Proceedings

A "club is a club": sports clubs, fan clubs, night clubs to use a domain name ending in ".club".
From the author:
"The URS, however, is less developed, given the relatively few decisions that have been issued under it. Still, paragraph 1.1.3 of the URS makes clear that “one Complaint is acceptable for multiple related companies against one Registrant, but only if the companies complaining are related".

Reminders:
  • Trademarks should submit their datas into the Trademark Clearinghouse to participate in future Sunrise Periods. The official TMCH calendar is available here;
  • For a better recognition, Trademark clubs should register a ".club" domain name at their accredited Registrar.
