scoobydoo, the uk, and domain name disputes

How does the UK handle a dispute over a web site's address when a trademark infringement complaint has been made over the use of the domain's name? Just what is an abusive registration? The case Hanna-Barbera Productions, Inc -v- Graeme Hay gives us a little insight into internet law in the United Kingdom.

I found the appeal decision for the case through the Bureau of National Affairs, Inc., which sends out a free email on weekdays called BNA’s Internet Law News. I've received copies the last three days, and I'm impressed. If you're interested in legal matters on the net, it's worth spending a couple of minutes and subscribing. I signed up after reading a post about the service by Donna Wentworth over at copyfight. Thanks, Donna!
