Traverse Internet Law Federal Court Report: November 2011 - Domain Name Dispute Lawsuits


The facts are unproven allegations of the Plaintiff and all commentary is based upon the allegations, the truthfulness and accuracy of which are likely in dispute.


ABERCROMBIE & FITCH TRADING CO. v. LIN, ET AL.
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF FLORIDA (FT. LAUDERDALE)
0:11-CV-62338-WJZ
FILED: 10/31/2011

You should only buy domain names when you have cleared them with your legal counsel or you are adequately familiar with the laws so that you do not put you and/or your company at risk. Remember that the damages per domain name for cybersquatting are up to $100,000.

Abercrombie is engaged in the business of manufacturing and distributing clothing and related materials throughout the world. The Defendants have registered allegedly confusingly similar domain names that include the Abercrombie name in many ways.

The lawsuit alleges trademark counterfeiting and infringement, false designation of origin, and cybersquatting. Prayer for relief requests preliminary and permanent injunctive relief from use of infringing marks and domain names, all profits and damages resulting from trademark infringement and cybersquatting activities, costs and reasonable attorneys’ fees, investigative fees, and any other relief as the Court deems just and equitable. Traverse Internet Law Cross Reference Number 1534.
