Bob Marley's "WAILERS" Win Cybersquatting Lawsuit

Bob Marley & Wailers imageTraverse Legal has a posting about a domain dispute between Bob Marley’s Wailers, who eventually became known simply as the “Wailers” after Bob Marley’s death, successfully argued for dismissal of this cybersquatting and trademark infringement lawsuit brought by band members of another Wailers musical group who started using the band name 10 years before Bob Marley named his group in 1969.  The only evidence which could potentially have saved Plaintiff’s claims against Bob’s protégées would have been that the band used the mark the “Wailers” and registered wailers.com in bad faith.  No evidence of bad faith was introduced by plaintiffs.
