(March 14, 2016, 12:15 PM EDT) -- ATLANTA — A Florida federal judge did not err in granting two defendants accused of violating the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA) summary judgment because the judge properly determined that their use of two plaintiffs’ names in a series of domain names required proof of secondary meaning to be actionable under the statute, the 11th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals concluded March 9 (Dan Pronman, et al. v. Brian Styles, et al., No. 15-12651, 11th Cir.; 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 4402).
