Jysk v Monosu Dutta Roy: 11th Cir Deems Re-registration of Domain Name to be New Registration Under ACPA, In Conflict with GoPets Decision


Splitting with the Ninth Circuit in the GoPets case, the 11th Circuit has deemed a re-registration of a domain name to be a new registration for purposes of ACPA. The significance is that ACPA has a trademark priority prerequisite (at least that’s how I read it) that might be met if a re-registration is treated as a new registration.
