Decision Summary:

i) Complainant owns trademark rights to the phrase YANAI TADASHI FOUNDATION and the disputed yanaitadashi-foundation.org domain name is a nearly identical copy of Complainant’s trademark, merely adding a hyphen and the “.org” TLD;
ii) Respondent has no rights or legitimate interests in the disputed domain name as its use in pursuit of an email phishing scheme is not a bona fide offering of goods or services, there is no evidence that Respondent is commonly known by the disputed domain name, and Respondent’s phishing scheme is not a legitimate noncommercial or fair use of the disputed domain name; and
iii) The email phishing scheme pursued by Respondent impersonates Complainant and seeks commercial gain by creating a likelihood of confusion with the YANAI TADASHI FOUNDATION mark in violation of Policy par. 4(b)(iv).
