A numbered Ontario company carrying on business under the name Domain Register of Canada (DRC) and one its affiliates, Domain Register of America Inc. (the Plaintiffs) have initiated legal proceedings against Tucows for having sent out emails warning its clients of DRC's questionable marketing practices. In particular, Tucows' emails warned its clients of DRC's practice of getting domain registrants to renew their domain names with the company by implying that they were related to an official government body. In their Statement of Claim, the Plaintiffs deny the foregoing claims by Tucows and accuse Tucows of having caused them harm by its defamatory statements.
