The domain name is transferred is transferred

The Adjudicator finds that the Complainants have shown, on a balance of probabilities, that they have rights in trade marks and names identical or similar to the contested domain name, and that the contested domain name is an abusive registration in the hands of the Registrant.

For all the foregoing reasons, in accordance with Regulation 9, the Adjudicator orders that the domain name, be transferred. Since the Complainants have not indicated to which of them they would prefer the domain name to be transferred, the Adjudicator orders that the domain name be transferred to the First Complainant, being the owner of the registered trade mark and prior domain name.
