Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman won a cybersquatting case over a Saint Kitts and Nevis-based web site operator named Mighty LLC
Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman won a cybersquatting case done by a Saint Kitts and Nevis-based web site operator named Mighty LLC, who has already misused his trademark to lure surfers to its web site in "bad faith." In a ruling announced by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), a United Nations agency which promotes protection of trademarks and patents, Freeman was found to have common law rights to the contested Internet domain name.
And so, Freeman won the case. Ownership of the domain name is transferred within 10 days unless the loser launches a court case challenging the decision.
