TEEN MAGAZINE Wins Landmark Decision: Cybersquatters Evicted From Internet Site
Source: Business Wire

(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- TEEN MAGAZINE, the nation's largest magazine for younger teenage girls, has won a trailblazing court victory against cybersquatters.

The U.S. District Court in New Jersey has invoked the newly passed anti-cybersquatting law, which protects businesses and individuals from having their rightful names usurped on the Internet, and issued a preliminary injunction against the operators of a Web site that took the name teenmagazine.com and linked it to a pornography site.

The injunction is the first step in having the link permanently returned to TEEN MAGAZINE.

``This was one of the very first applications of the new law,'' noted TEEN MAGAZINE counsel David Jacobs, ``so a great deal of attention was paid to how the court would respond. What made the case particularly compelling to the court was that the squatters set up a link to a pornography site at teenmagazine.com, an address that would attract teenage girls.

``Our suit remedied the problem.'' Jacobs noted that the court responded in an unprecedented fashion, ordering that teenmagazine.com be turned over to TEEN MAGAZINE at the temporary restraining order stage, so teenmagazine.com was relinquished to TEEN MAGAZINE in less than 24 hours of the suit being filed.

TEEN MAGAZINE is now accessible on the Internet at teenmagazine.com and teenmag.com.

Tommi Lewis, editor of TEEN MAGAZINE, reports the ruling has come just as the magazine's completely new Web page is being launched on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14. The site is expected to receive more than 11 million page views this month. ``We're relieved that this problem has been solved and that TEEN MAGAZINE's readers will have no more problems accessing our Web site.''

TEEN MAGAZINE, a division of EMAP USA, has published since 1957 and today has a paid circulation of more than 2 million. In 1981 TEEN MAGAZINE began its annual ``Teen's Great Model Search,'' and in 1998 began an Athlete of the Year Award, as a way to recognize and honor female athletes and to encourage young women to participate in sports.
