Appellate Court Deems Typo-Squatting Punishable

JoeCartoon.com -- a Web site showcasing animations with names 
such as Frog Blender, Look at My Monkey and Joe Fish -- is 
entitled to protection from typo-squatting under the Anti-
Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, according to an opinion 
issued by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit on Friday. 

The appellate court upheld the decision of the U.S. District Court 
for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, which ruled that the owner 
of five URLs similar to animation site www.joecartoon.com was 
liable for damages and attorney's fees under the anti-
cybersquatting act.
