I'm Not Sure the Headline Actually Captures the Ruling. The AP has an article entitled "Court: Man Can Disparage Company on Web." Of course, that's not quite the ruling. Instead, the court merely held that there was no likelihood of confusion, and thus no trademark infringement. (And the article also contains one of my pet peeves with non-lawyer written news reports - a confusion between trademark and copyright.) From the article: "The appeals court, however, reinstated part of the lawsuit in which Bosley alleged that Kremer is violating a so-called cybersquatting law by allegedly attempting to sell the site to Bosley in exchange for removing the disparaging material."
