    A three-member World Intellectual Property Organization panel has found (pdf) that Majid Al Futtaim Properties Llc attempted to reverse domain name hijack the domain name CityCentre.com.

    The Complainant runs shopping centers in the Middle East using the brands [city name] City Centres, e.g., Beirut City Centre. It has figurative trademarks for the shopping centers that include the city names. It does not appear to have any registered trademarks specifically for “City Centre,” likely because that’s a generic term referring to the center of a city.

    Paul Goldstone’s company Domain-It acquired the domain name in 2001 along with iGoldRush, a long-running site about domain names.

    ...Complainant’s counsel in both cases was Talal Abu Ghazaleh Legal in Egypt. The firm’s founder is the chair of two non-profit organizations that formed The Arab Center for Dispute Resolution (ACDR), an ICANN-accredited UDRP forum.
