Appellate Division Precludes Transferor of Name From Using Associated URL

Appellate Division, Second Department holds the transfer of a name precludes the transferor from utilizing a URL which contains the transferred name. The Court further held that such practice would likely cause confusion and therefore, issued a preliminary injunction prohibiting the transferor from using the name to promote its company. Stadler v. Weinstein et al., Index No. 704086/2015 (Sup. Ct., Queens C’nty, 2015).
