Short Take: Planned Parenthood wins domain appeal

A federal appeals court has upheld a February 1997 ruling that bars an antiabortion activist from using the domain name "plannedparenthood.com." Planned Parenthood sued to remove the Web site on grounds that it falsely claimed to be the national organization's home page, violating its trademark and confusing consumers. The site owner, Richard Bucci of New York, posted articles stating that abortion is "destroying the soul of America," which is contrary to Planned Parenthood's philosophy.
