Arnold Clark Automobiles Limited operates a website offering its services at www.arnoldclark.com below are a list of the 20 cases that Arnold Clark Automobiles has raised via WIPO, the earliest dating back to 2002 to win ownership over Arnold-Clark.org and the most recent case being ArnoldClarkEmployees.com launched recently under WIPO case number D2020-1406, the company already owns the domain name ArnoldClarkEmployee.com which takes it’s employees to a login page.
The domain name ArnoldClarkEmployees.com was registered on the 6th of March 2020 at Dynadot.com and is currently parked at Bodis.com, I see this case being won very easily by Arnold Clark Automobiles represented by Demys.
As you can see from the cases below, Arnold Clark Automobiles Limited has won nearly every case with two being terminated ArnoldClark.sale which appears to be owned by the company now and redirect to ArnoldClark.com and ArnoldClarkApps.com doesn’t appear to be registered any longer so assuming it was agreed to be dropped by the prior registrant instead of being transferred however I would think it might make sense for Demys who represent Arnold Clark, in this case, to register for brand protection.
