My company, Hudacko Enterprises L.L.C., has been named as a co-defendant along with GoDaddy and Wild West Domains in a lawsuit for copyright and patent infringement by TUMI Inc (owned by Samsonite Luggage) in Indiana.
Hudacko Enterprises is located in New Jersey and does not "actively" market in Indiana. Has anyone else been named in a similar lawsuit?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Greetings @HudackoEnt ,
While copyright and patent law may be of general interest, the majority of Community Members are not attorneys, so any feedback should be offered (and taken) with great caution. I'm sure your counsel of choice can research similar cases and offer the best course of action.
However, one specific thing I can offer may be useful, please do make full use of the "Legal" section on the bottom of our homepage.
I hope that helps,

The point of my post was that I am being sued for using my Wild West/GoDaddy Reseller Account due to GoDaddy NOT filtering out infringing Domain Names from the Domain Name search/registration facilities provided in the Reseller Storefront.
I am also interested in whether or not any other Resellers are in this situation, as I cannot for the life of figure out why TUMI/Samsonite have targeted me along with GoDaddy and WildWest.
I am NOT looking for legal advice, rather I was interested in potentially finding other Resellers in that same situation as my company.
@allimeenaYou're free to point a domain wherever you choose. There are several other ad networks out there, while each has their own set of criteria you'd need to qualify for in order to participate.
Yes, I've been a Reseller since the days of WildWest Domains.
Yes, I've looked at the suit online(and the 60 page suit sent via U.S.Mail) and I am the ONLY Reseller named(Hudacko Enterprises L.L.C.) along with GoDaddy, Wild West, etc.(all GoDaddy companies)
No, I have not reached out on Google+ as I cannot seem to Join the group.
No, GoDaddy Legal has NOT communicated with me in anyway in spite of my calls and eMail.
My NJ based attorney is not licensed to practice in Indiana and I have no contacts there, nor a business presence.
