Decision is hot off the press. I don't think the decision is posted anywhere on the net for free just yet. I've attached a text copy of the decision.

Notably, the defendants were without legal counsel (although that may not have changed the outcome)...

Just goes to show what happens when you mess with the big boys eh..

Comment #2

Hmm...maybe some don't know about Verne Gagne and his history with Wrestling.

He is a pioneer in the "sport" and WWE would be nowhere if it wasn't for him. He should have been given more respect than this BS over a couple domains.

He is 82 years old now. WWE is rich beyond compare and Verne Gagne is a relic. It's sad that the giant went after this man over a couple domains. It's imho disrespectful. Yeah his argument is without merit in law but let's be realistic...he isn't the normal cybersquatter here. This isn't the case of someone parking a domain for income.

I kind of believe Gagne didn't defend this well and doesn't have the deep pockets to hire a room of lawyers like the WWE.

Shame on them.

Looks like WWE dropped the elbow on a senior, that should make for good reading in the next issue of AARP!..

Comment #4

History: Present: Labrocca: Since 1990 Gagner has been forbidden to use those marks. He's no different than any other cybersquatter in registering and using known trademarks under the same categories. What was Gagner's legitimate reason for infringing multiple times on these established trademarks? Labrocca, your position as presented, is completely meritless and unrealistic...

Comment #5

Note: the decision was against Dale Gagne, not Verne...

Comment #6

Ironically, I found out after the fact that I know the judge's clerk who helped draft this opinion. Small world...

Also, I learned that the defendant in this case apparently changed his name and is not related to Verne Gagne...

Comment #7

That explains it. Obviously not as meritless as you think given this new information. WWE shouldn't abuse it's past. My opinion wasn't based on law but matters of principle.

And you forgot to quote this part of my statement: This was like Microsoft suing Bill just don't slap a guy in the face like that. This Gagne appears to have been a phony and one can totally understand why the WWE took this position...
