Positive result for the 100th complaint filed by De Gaulle Fleurance & Associés for Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer
De Gaulle Fleurance & Associés, which assists Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer in protecting its trademarks, has just received the (positive) result of the 100th complaint the law firm filed to protect the “Monte-Carlo” trademark on the Internet.
The law firm assists Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer in its programme to systematically combat cyber-squatting. De Gaulle Fleurance & Associés has proudly secured a 97% success rate for this program (28 amicable settlements and 69 decisions in favour of Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer), as well as the recovery of no less than 1,195 domain names.
The 100th decision concerned the domain name www.montecarlobet.us, a sports betting site which infringed the American trademark “Monte-Carlo” n°4.200.384 owned by Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer.
Julien Horn, Partner, who leads a team that also includes Francine Le Péchon-Joubert, Partner, and Céline Forthomme-Duena, said: “We can be satisfied for our client whose rights have been recognised on the “Monte-Carlo” trademark, a world-renowned brand and therefore particularly exposed to fraudulent uses. We are also proud that this new decision crowns our client’s efforts and De Gaulle Fleurance & Associés’ lawyers and paralegals who have contributed over the years to achieving such a fine result.”
