Safenames was able to successfully recover "gushansen.com", despite the fact that the three-time World Poker Champion, Gus Hansen, did not have a registered trademark on his name. The recovery, which took place in September of 2009, was made possible through a [[UDRP]] filing with the [[WIPO]]; they demonstrated that the domain was registered in [[Bad Faith|bad faith]].<ref>[http://www.casinoman.net/gambling-news/article/safenames-wins-domain-dispute-for-legendary-poker-player-gus-hans.5850.asp# CasionMan.net]</ref>
