Vegas Casino Sues Online Casino Site For Trademark Infringement

October 14th, 2010 – by Glen Farmer

Two website operators have reportedly been sued by Station Casinos Inc., a Las Vegas casino company. Their suit includes allegations that the webmasters have infringed upon a Station trademark.

Ryan Murphy of Great Britain, as well as S.L. Enterprises, have both been brought to the U.S. District Court for Nevada in Las Vegas. The suit alleges that Murphy is associated with stationcasinos.org, while S.L. Enterprises is allegedly associated with vegasstationcasino.com.

Cybersquatting is the basis of the suit. According to the Anticybersquatting Consumer Protection Act, using a domain name with bad faith intent to profit from another entity’s trademark.

The lawsuit states that these two websites are trying to use the Station Casino’s name in order to sell their own product. Station has alleged that both domains are attempting to “lure away prospective visitors to Las Vegas.”

These two domains both link to online casinos. One of the sites links to Vegas Casino Online.

Brick and mortar casinos typically shun online casinos, and part of the reason is that they are afraid online casinos will take business. By pulling tricks like cybersquatting, those who would promote the best USA casinos with shenanigans such as this would damage the USA online gambling industry on a whole.
