Jeweler files claim over six domain registrations.
Jewelry company Tacori Enterprises has sued Oversee.net in U.S. District Court for cybersquatting.
Tacori alleges (pdf) that Oversee.net is cybersquatting with at least six domain names:
Tacori alleges that Oversee.net “is a serial cybersquatter who registers, uses, and traffics in domain names that are confusingly similar to famous or distinctive trademarks owned by others, including Tacori trademarks.” It also alleges that Oversee.net intentionally failed to maintain accurate whois records for the domains.
Tacori is represented by Howard Kroll and David Steele of Christie, Parker, and Hale, LLP. The two are no strangers to cybersquatting lawsuits; they’ve represented Verizon in multiple cases.
When asked for comment, Oversee.net responded “We are reviewing the lawsuit and plan to defend our position vigorously.”
[Update: It appears Oversee.net capitulated and handed over the domains.]
