This is the decision that gave J. Crew the rights to was registered by Telepathy, a speculator in domain
names.  It was not being used for a real web page.  J. Crew tried
to buy, but did not come to terms with Telepathy, and
then used the UDRP to take it away.  Crew is a generic word.  J.
Crew has apparently registered crew as a trademark.   J. Crew
also has for its web page.

CPT agrees with the dissent by panel member G. Gervaise Davis

     We are not legislators, but arbitrators. The majority,
     in an effort to stop a practice that it seems to take
     upon itself to believe is an unstated purpose of the
     ICANN Policy, has completely over-stepped its mandate
     as arbitrators. The decision creates a new and
     unauthorized test out of whole cloth, based on
     assumptions of fact by arbitrators without evidence on
     the subject, instead of using the appropriate and
     carefully crafted three step test for required evidence
     set out by the ICANN Policy and Rules. In my judgment,
     the majority's decision prohibits conduct which was not
     intended to be regulated by the ICANN policy. This
     creates a dangerous and unauthorized situation whereby
     the registration and use of common generic words as
     domains can be prevented by trademark owners wishing to
     own their generic trademarks in gross. I cannot and
     will not agree to any such decision, which is
     fundamentally wrong. I respectfully dissent from the
     majority decision of my fellow professional panelists.

CPT Comment:

1.   The UDRP should not have given J. Crew the rights to  Crew is a generic word.  J. Crew had registered, a domain name that was clearly different from  It is anticompetitive for the UDRP to take away
     domains based upon generic words to a company that has a
     different name.
