KBR’s attempt to silence www.kbrlitigation.com blocked

Today the ICANN Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution panel rejected KBR’s attempt to silence www.kbrlitigation.com, the public information site maintained for the Qarmat Ali vets and public to stay informed about the KBR Qarmat Ali litigation.  Although literally dozens of sites used “KBR” and various combinations, KBR chose to pursue a claim to shut down www.kbrlitgation.com.  In finding that the domain name would “clearly represent a nominative fair use of Complainant’s /KBR’s/ mark”, the panel’s decision bolsters free speech and transparency on the web.
