As you can see from the CBS News video embedded above, (Former) Dior designer John Galliano made news this past week for allegedly making anti-semitic remarks. There was also another video in which he allegedly said something about Hitler.
All of that aside, John Galliano was actually a winner this week. He may not have gained many fans, but he and his legal team did win a UDRP case for a ccTLD domain name: Galliano.fr (the decision is written in French).
According to my handy Google Translate tool, one argument Galliano and his legal team made was that “John Galliano is well known for being one of fashion’s most gifted of our time.” I am not that much into fashion so I can’t make a judgment about that, but I can say that Galliano is likely more well known this week than ever before, and that’s probably not a good thing.
The domain owner in this case did not submit a response to the UDRP, and the single panelist found in favor of Galliano.
