Hank Mishkoff created shopsatwillowbend.com, a non-commercial site promoting a Plano, Texas mall under construction by Taubman Company. It contained a prominent disclaimer pointing users to the official site shopwillowbend.com, and got an injunction shutting it down. On 7 August 2001, Taubman Company sued to seize the site infringing its trademark, and succeeded in gaining an injunction to shut it down. In response to the lawsuit, registrant Hank Mishkoff registered and posted details of the ongoing litigation to taubmansucks.com, with alias domain names WillowBendSucks.com, WillowBendMallSucks.com, ShopsAtWillowBendSucks.com, and TheShopsAtWillowBendSucks.com. Taubman succeed in having the injunction amended to shut down the "sucks" site as well. After an appeals court struck down the injunction, the case was dismissed with prejudice on 19 February 2003.

  • If You Follow a Few Simple Rules, You Can Cybergripe All You Want "As long as the cybergriper keeps any commercial elements off the site, and also uses a simple disclaimer, it looks like people should also avoid picking a fight with those who know how to upload a few kilobytes."
