Initial Interest Confusion Not Applied To Gripe Site (on Motion to Dismiss, no less)


Ron Coleman of Likelihood of Confusion fame successfully represents defendant in dismissing trademark complaint. Defendant, PissedConsumer.com, is a gripe site. Complaints about EXAMPLE are hosted at EXAMPLE.PISSEDCONSUMER.COM. See screenshot above. No likelihood of confusion, even initial interest confusion, because consumers here will not be lured to stop searching by a competing site.
