  3. 4 Show/Hide More TMI, Inc. v. Maxwell

  4. 5 Show/Hide More Bosley Medical Institute, Inc. v. Kremer - ACPA Note
    Original Creator: mrisch

    This case note considers the role of commercial use for the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA). Recall that Kremer started a non-commercial gripe site. In an earlier part of the opinion, the court ruled that registering the domain name “BosleyMedical.com” was not commercial for the purposes of infringement and dilution.
