Court Hears Arguments in $30M Oscars Cybersquatting Case

Arguments were heard in a multi-million dollar cybersquatting case filed by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences against domain name registrar GoDaddy. Legal representatives for the organisation, more commonly known as the Academy and which hosts the Academy Awards (Oscars), claimed that GoDaddy showed “bad faith intent to profit” from 293 domains that were registered by third parties with the registrar.
