    • 1996, Jeff Kuester, re: They want to take scooby.com away! [1], misc.int-property:
      Maybe a little broad in your interpretation? Dilution would not have existed in this case if Toeppen were not in the "business" of cybersquatting? The statute does not allow noncommercial use to "dilute", but when a domain name owner suggests money may be taken for the domain name, a problem is created for the DNO, right? This may be a large trap for attorneys advising in this area.
