Moncler Filing Many UDRPs, But Still Has a Long Way to Go

Moncler is a popular French luxury clothing and accessories brand, and the company is in the midst of a battle against counterfeiters who produce knockoffs of their products. Not only are they trying to stop the producers, but they are also trying to stem the tide of websites unlawfully selling Moncler-branded items.

On the Moncler website, the company says “Moncler is waging a battle against the rampant phenomenon of counterfeiting. It is on the front line in the battle to defend the authenticity of its brand and its identity, and to protect the consumer.”

Over the last few years, Moncler has been filing UDRPs to try and take control of these domain names the company believes is confusing to consumers. Many of the UDRP filings the company has undertaken have been for tens of domain names. For instance, this UDRP filed at the end of October includes 27 domain names the company believes is infringing.

Every day, it seems like I get dozens of spammy comments that have backlinks to domain names with Moncler in them. I hadn’t even heard of Moncler until I was getting all the comment spam with the company’s name in the links.

If comment spam is any indication of how well this battle is going, I think Moncler has a long way to go.
