Reed Publ'g (Nederland) B.V. v. Execulink, Inc., 1998 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 18245 (D.N.J. Nov. 17, 1998).

Factual Background Edit

Plaintiffs filed an action alleging trademark infringement, dilution, and unfair competition regarding plaintiffs’ WHO’S WHO trademarks.

Trial Court Proceedings Edit

Defendants failed to file an answer, and the court entered default judgment against them. The court enjoined defendants from using "names, domain names or e‑mail addresses that infringe upon or are confusingly similar to plaintiff's various 'who's who' trademarks." It also ordered defendants to cancel, or transfer to plaintiffs at no cost, the infringing domain name "www.whoswhocd.com," and to recall and destroy all written materials infringing plaintiffs' trademarks. The court refused to award attorney's fees, finding no evidence that the case was "exceptional."
