Anti-abortion cybersquatter loses appeal

A federal appeals court on Wednesday said an anti-abortion activist
had violated trademark law by registering a slew of domain names,
including drinkcoke.org, mycoca-cola.com, mymcdonalds.com,
mypepsi.org, and my-washingtonpost.com.

Bill Purdy, who lives in South Saint Paul, Minn., had purchased those
and other domains and used them to point visitors to prolife
commentary and depictions of aborted and dismembered fetuses. Purdy
claims that the companies he targeted promoted abortion.
