==Brand Protection Achievements==
In May of 2009, SafeNames Safenames successfully recovered a variety of domain names for five major soccer clubs within the English Premier League. The company was able to link the disparate trademark infringements into a single case and file on behalf of Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur, Fulham, and West Ham clubs. They filed with [[WIPO]] using the [[UDRP]]. The WIPO panel ruled in their favor. Examples of the violations include: official-manchester-tickets.com, official-liverpool-tickets.com, official-tottenham-tickets.com, official-fulham-tickets.com.<ref>[http://www.domainnamenews.com/legal-issues/safenames-recovers-domain-names-english-premier-league-clubs/5089 DomainNameNews.com]</ref>
SafeNames 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>
