Nominet UK takes legal action against DRS

'Passing off'

Nominet UK has launched legal action against Domain Registrar Services Limited (DRS) amid allegations of trade mark infringement and passing off.

The legal action comes a week after it issued a formal warning concerning sales tactics of DRS. Nominet UK - the national registry for all domain names ending .uk - claimed DRS was using the Nominet name to make sales pitches sound credible.

In a statement Nominet UK said that it did not wish to comment further to avoid any prejudice to the case. ®
