Fred von Lohmann: Noncommercial Gripesites Rejoice!
Fred weighs in on Bosley Medical Institute v. Kremer:
This is a very big deal (props to Public Citizen, which defended the case), as I'd say the opinion's rationale applies with equal force to the content, as well as the domain name, of a website. If that's right, then noncommercial critics are completely off the hook with respect to federal trademark and dilution claims. Free pass. Scott free.
Hmmm...Inquiring minds want to know: what does Marty
Update (April 6): Marty responds: "A guy named Kremer gets a hair transplant. Stop me if you heard this one."
