New Jersey Court Refuses to Dismiss “Cybersquatting” Trademark Lawsuit

by Christine M. Vanek on November 2, 2012

A New Jersey judge recently refused to dismiss a trademark infringement lawsuit involving cybersquatting. The case arose after two rival car dealerships sought to become the new official Nissan dealership of Edison, New Jersey.

Defendant Dibre Auto Group registered two domain names — www.edisonnissan.com and www.nissanofedison.com — in connection with its application to acquire the new dealership. However, the dealership was ultimately awarded to plaintiff Edison Motor Sales, which subsequently adopted the trade name “Edison Nissan.”
