Harvard University brought suit in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts earlier this month against domain name owners, alleging trademark infringement and cyberpiracy (President and Fellows of Harvard College v. Michael Rhys, D. Mass., No. 99CV12489RCL, filed 12/6/99, Judge Reginald Lindsey).
