A federal appeals court upheld a judgement last Friday against notorious poker player Russell “Dutch” Boyd in a case of trademark infringement against the massive online poker community Two Plus Two.
Dutch allegedly cyber-squatted and then “acted in bad faith” to register the domain name “twoplustwopoker.com” to try to divert customers away from 2p2, according to the Las Vegas Sun.
The appeals court said Two Plus Two presented evidence it has sold more than 2 million books and has 250,000 members on its online forums.
The judgement against Boyd by the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is for $25k plus an additional $33,985. Good thing Boyd has that new book done.
