In one of the first lawsuits in the country to test the federal Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, Bargainbid.com has obtained a temporary injunction against a dot-com competitor and a Tennessee man who allegedly diverted consumers to the competitor’s Web site.
U.S. District Judge Leonard Wexler, in the Eastern District of New York, granted the injunction last week in Bargain Bid v. Ubid, 99 CV 7598. The local company filed a lawsuit in December, which alleged that Ubid, Web site host Digitalnation, and Perry Belcher “embarked upon a plan to compete unfairly” with Bargain Bid. The lawsuit states that the defendants violated the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act and federal and state business law, 15 USC �1125(d).
