Victoria Secret Trademark Complaint — Another Hosting Company Finks Out

by Paul Alan Levy   

Amid the coverage of the feminist prank web site using Victoria Secret's name on a site promoting the concept of consent-themed underwear instead of underwear that portrays a woman’s readiness for sexual contact as a “sure thing,” I noted that in demanding the takedown of the web site on trademark infringement grounds, Victoria Secret “contacted our server, not us directly.” Apparently, the hosting service precipitously took the site down in response to the trademark holder's complaint, forcing the pranksters to move to a new host.

It would be nice to know which hosting service betrayed its customers instead of standing up for their free speech rights, so that other consumers would be warned not to do business with that ISP.
