Another Cybersquatting Story.

Cybersquatting cases evidently make good entertainment.

If you enjoyed the hilarious litigation odyssey documented here, you'll probably also like this recent Ninth Circuit opinion (here). (Bosley Medical Institute, Inc. v. Kremer, April 4, 2005, Case No. 04-55962.) Interestingly, the same appellate counsel was involved in both cybersquatting cases: Paul Levy with Public Citizen (a public interest firm that I had some experience with several years ago).

As Bosley serves the "folliclely challenged", the Court could not resist peppering its opinion with puns. The greatest hits: "In a bald-faced effort to get even...." And, "Bosley responds that Kremer is splitting hairs."
