Jacqui Cheng of Law & Disorder reports on the results of cybersquatting case where the defendant prevailed because it was a website that was critical of the trademark owner. The article begins:
“A gripe site that incorporates a company’s entire trademark into its domain is still protected under the First Amendment, a US District Judge has ruled. In the case of Career Agents Network v. careeragentsnetwork.biz, the judge said that the gripe site made no effort to bolster its own business and was noncommercial, therefore protecting it from Career Agents Network’s trademark claims and cybersquatting accusations.”
