Domain Names

District Court did not clearly err in concluding that consumers are unlikely to confuse “Escolastica.com” and “Escolastica.net” domain names, used in connection with Internet-based application that facilitates communication between school teachers and students in Mexico, with plaintiff’s English-language, “Scholastic.com” Web site offering similar service in United States, since words “escolastica” and “scholastic” are different, and defendants’ sites are in Spanish.  (Scholastic Inc. v. Escolastica.com, 71 USPQ2d 1542, CA 4, 6/7/04).
