The court denied the motion and conducted a hearing to determine the validity of service of process. WAWA had served the complaint on defendant by e-mail and certified mail. The court held that e-mail was not a valid form of service, but that service by certified mail was proper. The court entered a declaratory judgment that defendant’s use of the domain name “wawawa.com” violated the Federal Trademark Dilution Act of 1995 (FTDA) and the Pennsylvania antidilution statute.
