Smoky domain names

Philip Morris USA has won the latest round in an effort to curb Internet and counterfeit sales of its cigarettes, with a decision of a Southern District of New York court (Philip Morris USA v. Otamedia, 02 Civ. 7575). "The opinion by Judge Gerard Lynch modified a previous ruling ordering Otamedia to stop the sale of Philip Morris cigarettes to customers in the United States. Otamedia disobeyed the order, leading Judge Lynch to hand the Otamedia domain names from which it sold cigarettes over to Philip Morris."
