Surprising Cybersquatting Domain Name Dispute in the Ninth Circuit

By InfoLawGroup LLP on November 04, 2010

A panel of the Ninth Circuit last week released an opinion in DSPT Int'l, Inc. v. Nahum, 2010 WL 4227883, (CV-06-00308-ODW)(Oct. 27, 2010), that's worth a brief review for its various holdings in a "cybersquatting" trademark and domain name dispute. What's interesting about this case? For starters the different result the Court reached under the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (the "ACPA") versus what would have occurred had a Uniform Domain-Name Dispute Resolution (UDRP) procedure been followed.
