Chicago Partner Judith L. Grubner has written an article titled “Re-registration of Current Domain Name By New Owner Not ACPA ‘Registration’” that appeared in the December 2011 issue of The Intellectual Property Strategist. In the article, Ms. Grubner discusses the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (“ACPA”) and the Ninth Circuit’s decision regarding registration of domain names. The Ninth Circuit has held that the ACPA  does not apply to domain names containing a third-party trademark if the domain name was originally registered prior to the first use or registration of the trademark, even if the domain name owner transfers the name to a third party after the trademark registration date.
