Solvay SA v. Honeywell
SUN PHARMACEUTICAL v. ELI LILLY

DSPT INTERNATIONAL INC v. NAHUM

Even if a domain name was put up innocently and used properly for years, a person is liable under 15 U.S.C. § 1125(d) if he subsequently uses the domain name with a bad faith intent to profit from the protected mark by holding the domain name for ransom. The evidence sufficiently supported the jury’s verdict that Nahum did so, causing $152,000 in damages to DSPT.

AFFIRMED.
