Sun Microsystems Inc v Lai Sun Hotels International Ltd [2000] HKLRD 616
UK Case: Marks and Spencers and Others v. One in a Million Limited

UK Case: Harrods.com

Harrods is a famous and the biggest dept store in UK. The domain name harrods.com was registered by the Defendant.

Court considered Defendant's activities in registering as a domain name "… clearly constituted infringement of Harrods' trade marks and passing-off".

No reasoned judgment was given by court. It is rather unclear whether mere act of registering of domain name could amount to trade mark infringement or passing off.
