Samson, 1; The Giant, 0

Score one for the little guy. In this case out of the Fifth Circuit, the Court overturned the trial court’s judgment against a disgruntled consumer who registered a domain name similar to the company against whom he held a grudge and proceeded to post his story on the site. The Fifth Circuit ruled that his actions were not done in a commercial capacity, were not done with the intent to profit, and that he was not a cybersquatter intending to hold the domain hostage.
