Honorable Arbitrator Mr Ranjan Narula taken the decision as the complaintant has succeeded in its complaint.
Bosch is a popular trademark , Respondent has failed to file a response . Arbitrator has made an obvious choice as the respondent has more or less accepted the bad faith by not filing a response. If a domain owner really registers for genuine interests, the first thing the domain owner has to do is file a response in case of INDRP dispute. We support the abritrators decision on this dispute
