GoDaddy gets injunction against alleged Whois spammers

Lawsuit moves forward with preliminary injunction ruling.

A Federal District Court judge has issued a preliminary injunction (pdf) in favor of GoDaddy against people and a company that GoDaddy says were spamming domain name registrants and pitching them on various design services. GoDaddy says that the defendants used GoDaddy’s trademarks as part of their scheme.

The injunction doesn’t come as a big surprise because a) it merely prevents the defendants from doing things that would be infringing anyway and b) the defendants deny participating in the alleged infringing activities.

The defendants in the lawsuit also filed motions to dismiss. The judge denied almost all of these motions, but GoDaddy is going to need to undertake discovery to show jurisdiction over one of the defendants who claims to be in Pakistan.

Also, the defendants have filed their response (pdf) to the lawsuit. It mostly contains denials and 23 affirmative defenses.
