URLs and Trademarks

Sixth Circuit finds no trademark violation in post-domain paths "...the Sixth Circuit has ruled that the use of a registered trademark in the post-domain path of a URL does not violate trademark law because it is unlikely to create customer confusion regarding the origins of the goods offered at the website.

The post-domain path of a URL is everything after the domain name, e.g. anything after "nytimes.com" or "lawmeme.org.""
