BUSINESS DOMAIN TO THE RIGHTFUL OWNER
Existing companies that have through years of hard work, where they have produced quality products and/or services, such that their business name has gained considerable positive traction, which in turn drives sales and profits. Unfortunately, this in turn has resulted in unscrupulous individuals using their company name or a variant thereof for their own commercial ends, which is something that the corporate leadership needs to take decisive action to stop, for not only does harm the company's image, but more significantly it cuts into profits. Examples of companies whose business name has been misappropriated via an improper domain name#:
Tata Global Beverages Ltd. (formerly Tata Tea Ltd.) - a tea cultivation, producing, manufacturing, processing, blending and marketing business in India since 1962 and known as Tata Tea Limited since 1983, forming part of the larger conglomerate known as the "House of Tatas" - attained the transfer of tata-tea.com (Case No. 2000-1823) and tatatea.net (Case No. D2000-1824).
Deutsche Post AG - the largest provider of postal services in Germany, being the privatized successor to the former Federal Post Office in Germany, which held a large number of trade mark registrations including the name Deutsche Post - attained the transfer of deutschepost.net (Case No. D2003-0128).
Telecom Italia - is Italy's largest telecommunications company, providing technological infrastructures and platforms in which voice and data are converted into advanced telecommunications services, as well as the latest ICT and Media solutions - attained the termination of telecomitalia.com (Case No. D2003-0129).

# We have sought to provide some illustrate cases that saw prominent individuals of that particular classification recovery domain names that did bear their name, focusing on individuals that are very well known, even if most of those recoveries were not undertaken by ourselves, with the objective goal being to demonstrate that it is possible to recover those domain names, though it needs the appropriate legal counsel, for often times, even when the decision is rendered, the transference is not completed in a timely fashion or subjected to further legal maneuvers in an attempt to either delay the process or attain alternate relief (i.e., extort additional consideration).
