The American Film Marketing Association, the "AFMA", is a large corporation that handles about a billion dollars in product. In late January 2001, the AFMA sent a cease and desist letter to Andy Hasse, owner of AFM.COM, wherein they state that AFM.COM was infringing upon their trademarks. Mr. Hasse, who is providing a portal to classifieds and auctions ("The American Flea Market") since 1996, replied in a letter, that he would keep the domain.
Contact with WIPO
The American Film Marketing Association then wote a Complaint and sent it to WIPO, the World Intellectual Property Organization. Mr. Hasse sent a Response to WIPO in time and now it is up to the WIPO Panelist to decide what happens to the domain name.
Mr. Hasse has put a protest web site in place, where you can sign two petitions.
The case has been solved by WIPO in favour of Andy Hasse. The AFMA could not get AFM.com.
