Casino News: Boyd Gaming vs. Canadian Internet domain owner

Boyd Gaming vs. Canadian Internet domain owner

 November 25, 2009, 12:14 pm (8 years ago)
This week, the Boyd Gaming Corp. of Las Vegas brought a federal court action where the determination by US land gambling groups to protect their hard earned trademarks and brands was yet again apparent.
The move prosecuted the Canadian owner of an Internet domain name, claiming that it faultily connects one of the Boyd casinos with an online gambling website.

Boyd Gaming legal representatives argue that Canadian resident Erik Hall in 2006 registered domain name usurpation on the trademarks of Boyd’s Blue Chip Casino, “a famous casino hotel spa”.
The supposedly encroaching domain name was connected to the Full Tilt Poker gambling Web site, the suit charges, claiming that Boyd has a legal complaint of Internet cybersquatting, trademark breach, unjust competition, and deceiving trade practices.
