dc.description.abstract Abstract: The Ninth Circuit recently held that an individual, Mr. Uzi Nissan, infringed the trademark of Nissan Motors when he registered and posted commercial content on www.nissan.com. An injunction was granted, barring Mr. Uzi from using the site commercially. Although the trademark dilution claim was remanded, the Ninth Circuit’s opinion favors a finding of dilution on remand. Additional arguments involving the property-right-in-gross theory of dilution, reverse domain name hijacking, and actual consumer behavior on the Internet should be used by the parties to bolster their cases and encourage a decision from the district court that will advance trademark law on the Internet in a reasoned and predictable fashion. en_US
