  • Mount Snow LLC v. Palmiter Realty Group

    Practice Area:
    Intellectual Property
    Outcome:
    Victory for my client
    Description:
    Ski resort claimed dominion over the name Mt. Snow, which over many years has become known not only as the name of a resort, but a mountain, town and surrounding valley. My client established a successful real estate brokerage in Mt. Snow and ran it for 25 years. The ski resort wanted to get into the real estate market and demanded that the domain name be turned over. The ski resort then sued before the World Intellectual Property Organization. In a written opinion, WIPO ruled in our favor and my client got to keep her website domain and to successfully continue the business she built.
