Canadian Tire filed a complaint to seize crappytire.com from Mick McFadden. Canadian Tire, colloquially referred to as Crappy Tire in Canada, claimed that crappytire.com, a site which compared Canadian Tire's prices with its competitors, was "attempting to create an impression of an association with Canadian Tire".
On 24 May 2001, WIPO panelist Ross Carson dismissed the complaint.
