Citigroup domain name case

Jeremy Phillips's take on Global Projects Management Ltd and another v Citigroup Inc and others (Chancery Division, England), a dispute over citigroup.co.uk. "The mere registration and maintenance of a domain name that led people to believe that the holder of the domain name was linked with a person was enough to make the domain a potential "instrument of fraud" and therefore constituted passing off."
