Earlier this year Jones Day made a successful case against a United Kingdom-based cybersquatter who had registered Eastman Chemical Co.’s domain name himself. The upset loser, Pankajkumar Patel, created a spoof Jones Day Web site in October, lambasting the firm’s litigation methods. The Web site took aim at the attorney who handled the case, Carrie Kiedrowski, asking whether she was a “compulsive liar.” One headline read: “Due to their immoral and unlawful actions, they are now subject of a parody site.” But Jones Day and an Ohio court didn’t find the site quite as funny as the creator apparently intended. Late last month, Jones Day won a permanent injunction against Patel and is now seeking attorney fees in the case. “There is only one message displayed by this site and that’s infringement,” says Robert Ducatman, a Jones Day partner handling the case. “There is nothing comical about it at all.” Patel, who is representing himself in the matter, could not be reached for comment.
