@@start.t2@@In  April  2004  Lico  Leasing,  a  Spanish  company working  on    the    finance sector under a registered trademark "LICO", filed a claim against  Lycos  Espana Internet Services S.L. to stop the use of the  trademark  "Lycos"  in  Spain and the domain name lycos.es. At the same time a claim was  filed  against  Carnegie Mellon  University to  deregister  the  trademark  "Lycos"  from    the    Spanish Trademark Register. In addition Lico Leasing claimed for damages for the use  of the trademark "Lycos" by Lycos Espana Internet Services S.L. The court of first instance in Madrid  declared  the  Spanish  Lycos  trademarks null and void and sentenced Lycos Espana Internet Services S.L. to stop the  use of the Trademark "Lycos" in Spain and to cease using  the  domain  name lycos.es and to withdraw the registration of  the  domain  name.  Lycos  Espana  Internet Services S.L. will file an appeal against this court decision.@@end@@
