Nagpal v Global Cars Aus Pty Ltd

In this case, the applicants sought certain declaratory and other relief which was, in substance, an application to the Federal Court to overturn orders made by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) in relation to a dispute in connection with the domain name “cars24.com.au” (Domain Name). The respondents challenged the jurisdiction of the Federal Court to grant the relief sought by the applicants, and filed an interlocutory application seeking dismissal of the proceeding.
