Kijken of Nintendo(c) meer succes heeft in de rechtzaal dan sony(c)Nintendo of America Inc. today filed a mass domain name lawsuit in Federal Court in Seattle, Wash., against 55 web domain names alleging the web sites willfully infringe the trademarks of its popular Pokemon® brand and characters.
The suit alleges that the registration of Pokemon-related Internet domain names constitutes trademark infringement, dilution and cyberpiracy, a violation of the Anti-Cybersquatting Protection Act, and unfair or deceptive trade practices. Nintendo has targeted domain names that are attempting to profit from the overwhelming commercial success of Pokemon. Nintendo is seeking monetary damages, a transfer of all the domain names to Nintendo, and an immediate injunction against the transferring or registering of any domain names likely to infringe on Nintendo trademarks.
"These web sites are an obvious attempt to profit illegally from the success of Pokemon," says Richard Flamm, Nintendo's vice president, legal and general counsel. "Nintendo is intent on protecting its brands and properties against any attempt of cybersquatting."Nintendo(c), Pokemon is copyright of Nintendo of America Inc.
