Morgan Stanley Sues Cybersquatters and Phishers

Bank sues alleged cybersquatters and phishers.

Morgan Stanley already has the domain names — but it wants more than that.

The bank has filed a lawsuit against the owners of five domain names that it says were used for cybersquatting and phishing.

The company already has possession of four of the five domain names thanks to proceedings at National Arbitration Forum last year. Through UDRP it picked up ms-ae-fund.com, morganstanleyae.us, morganstanleyae.com, and morganstanley-ae.com.

Yet the company has filed suit in Southern District of New York against the John Does that owned the domain names. Morgan Stanley wants to get their identities and hold them accountable. It alleges they provided false whois information, so the UDRP failed to uncover their true identity.

The bank demands a full accounting of how much the perpetrators made off their scheme and pay punitive damages.
