On other hand, Salton Inc., filed a complaint against George Foreman Foods Inc. with WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organisation) Arbitration and Mediation Center on September 24, 2004, on grounds that food's company use of web domain www.georgeforeman.com breached Salton's registered trade marks in name.
While looking at matter from a holistic point of view, complaint seems rather well-founded, company's use of domain creating possibility of "confusion as to source, sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of its web site", as Salton alleged.
However, WIPO, although admitting that domain name is identical to mark in which Salton has rights, agreed that George Foreman Foods did have rights in disputed domain name. The complaint was denied.
