ALL/ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!
A domain name was purchased from a private party in June.
The person had owned the domain for 10 years with no issues.
The domain name is a registered trademark of a US company.
We are using the domain as a supplement to our existing business.
The company is based in sweden but was registered initially in the US with godaddy.
The trademark holder has file a dispute with the National Arbitration Forum and we have 2 weeks to respond.
They are a big company with lots of money to burn. We are not.
They altered the facts and screenshots of our website to make it look like we obtained the website in 'bad faith' and have copied word for word from their website, when we have not, although the trademark word is used throughout the site and is used to sell our products.
What do we have to prove/disprove to win the case?
Does being registered based out of Sweden have an advantage?
How can a US trademark holder take a domain name owned by a Swedish company?
