Thermolife sues critic's blog for cybersquatting
A reader pointed me to this lawsuit, alleging cybersquatting against https://ronkramermusclebeach.wordpress.com/ based on Thermolife's Muscle Beach marks. You may notice that this isn't really a domain name, but a blog hosted on WordPress. In an in rem proceeding, will the court be able to recognize both the problem with the ACPA claims in terms of "domain name" and the problem with alleging cybersquatting? The site appears to be highly critical and classic fair use.
