FORD_GREAT_DOMAINS_DISMISSAL.pdf
Dismissals of Ford's Case against the EFF Defendants (and some others).
20020110_eff_pr.html
Electronic Frontier Foundation Media Advisory: EFF Wins a Partial Victory in Ford Case On December 20, 2001, the Eastern District of Michigan Court handed down several rulings in Ford v. Great Domains, et al. In that case, EFF, along with pro bono counsel Eric Grimm and David Lowenshuss, represents 7 individuals who were sued by Ford for registering domain names that contain Ford trademarks. The domains are all used by individuals for purposes unrelated to selling Ford cars. Ford claimed both trademark infringement and violation of the Anti-Cybersquatter Protection Act (ACPA). First, the court granted EFF's motion to dismiss the trademark causes of action. Second, the Court rejected Ford's attempts to drag even more individuals into the lawsuit through a process called "in rem" jurisdiction. Ford had attempted to bring hundreds of additional individuals into the lawsuit by fictitiously claiming that the lawsuit was not against the owner of the domain, but the domain itself.
