    Toshiba Wins Arbitration Against Selavy Media for Bad Faith Registration and Use of “Toshibatoner.com” Domain Name
    November  2006;In the
    first of a series of battles to protect authorized Toshiba dealers
    business interests, Toshiba America Business Solutions Inc. (TABS) is
    pleased to announce that Toshiba Corporation won the arbitration
    against Selavy Media for bad faith registration and use of the
    “toshibatoner.com” domain name. Toshiba Corporation filed the complaint
    with the National Arbitration Forum in August 2006, arguing that Selavy
    Media did not have any right or legitimate interest in the
    “toshibatoner.com” domain name, and that the name was confusingly
    similar to the TOSHIBA trademark. Having won the arbitration, Toshiba
    Corporation has been granted full rights and usage of the
    “toshibatoner.com” domain.”Toshiba Corporation has a zero-tolerance
    policy for the illegal use of its corporate identity, including as it
    relates to deceptive, misleading Internet business practices,” said Tom
    Walter, director Aftermarket Sales, Marketing & Operations for
    TABS. “With more cases on the docket for 2006 and 2007, we’re mustering
    the resources to aggressively police this type of piracy, in order to
    protect the business interests of our loyal, authorized Toshiba
    dealers.”Selavy Media was profiting from the goodwill associated with
    the Toshiba name by operating a non bona fide pay-per-click Web site
    under the “toshibatoner.com” Internet domain. The confusing and
    misleading site redirected consumers to Toshiba competitor sites in the
    print cartridge industry, which in turn disrupted authorized Toshiba
    dealer business practices.
