Web spoof sites -- legitimate or a trademark infringement?

This is a significant issue. Think of the political spoof names on twitter -- it is proper to use a trade or proper name to criticise a business with a mock website?

     VANCOUVER, B.C. (CN) - An Internet dating site that caters to people looking for extramarital affairs has sued a pair of Los Angeles residents for trademark infringement, claiming the defendants are running websites that claim the plaintiff's service is a scam. Avid Dating Life sued Dennis Bradshaw and Lena Karachun in British Columbia Federal Court.

     Avid Dating claims that Bradshaw's and Karachun's registration of the domain names "ashleymadisonsucks" and "ashleymadisonscam" should be revoked because they are confusingly similar to Avid's trademarks.

 Avid Dating Life is represented by Corey D. Steinberg with Double Diamond Law Corp.

Thanks for your write-up. One other thing is individual American states have their own laws that affect householders, which makes it very, very hard for the our lawmakers to come up with a brand new set of recommendations concerning foreclosure on householders.
The problem is that each state offers own legislation which may work in
an adverse manner on the subject of foreclosure
insurance plans.

I have observed in the world today, video games are
classified as the latest fad with kids of all ages. Occasionally it may be extremely hard
to drag the kids away from the games. If you want the best of both worlds, there are many educational games for kids.

Interesting post.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be
actually something which I think I would never understand.
It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or
copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I've either authored myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being ripped off? I'd really appreciate it.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found
a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely
off topic but I had to tell someone!

Another thing I've really noticed is that often for many people, poor credit is the reaction to circumstances over and above their control. For example they may have been saddled by having an illness and as a consequence they have large bills going to collections. It can be due to a employment loss or inability to do the job. Sometimes divorce can send the budget in the undesired direction. Thank you for sharing your notions on this web site.

Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using
for this site? I'm getting tired of Wordpress because I've had
problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
