Foreign direct investment is not allowed in the Indian retail industry, unless it is for a single brand store.  To get around this, in early 2007 Walmart and the well established Indian retailer the Bharti Group have partnered up.  Under this agreement, Walmart is the “wholesaler” who provides the goods that the Bharti Group retails.  The partnership does business under the name Bharti Wal-Mart Pvt. Ltd.

Unfortunately, despite being multi-billion dollar companies, they did not think to secure domains with their name in it.  As a result, a cybersquatter, Somesh Gupta from Bangalore registered the domains and

Bharti Wal-Mart Pvt. Ltd. brought action against the cybersquatter in the Delhi High Court.  The court has made an order restraining the cybersquatter from using the domain names.

It’s not clear to me why Bharti Wal-Mart decided to take action via the High Court rather than the UDRP and INDRP – perhaps combining both domains into one case was more convenient.
