According to the regulations set out by NASK, the Polish national registry for .pl domain names, domain name disputes are to be resolved by arbitration courts (proceedings similar to UDRP) or common courts.
Recently, the Arbitration Court at the Polish Chamber of Information Technology and Telecommunications in Warsaw examined a case concerning the registration and use of two domain names: kelkoo.pl and kelkoo.com.pl.
The domain names kelkoo.pl and kelkoo.com.pl were registered by a Polish subscriber on April 6, 2004 and February 23, 2005, respectively.
The designation ‘kelkoo’, used by the subscriber in the subject domain name registrations, is Kelkoo SAS’s trademark. The company Kelkoo SAS has enjoyed protection for its community trademarks since 2000, and on May 1, 2004, the protection was extended to the territory of Poland, following Poland’s accession to the EU.
