After successfully obtaining injunctive relief against a porn site that used a variation of Teen Magazine’s name as a domain name, the magazine’s publisher has filed suit against a student for registering teenmagazine.net with Network Solutions Inc. and offering to sell it to the publisher for $5,000 (Petersen Publishing Co. v. Britton, N.D. Ga., No.100-CV-0353, filed 2/10/00).
The suit, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia, Atlanta Division, alleges violations of the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act of 1999; false description, trademark infringement, and dilution under the Lanham Act; common law unfair competition; and unjust enrichment.
