Sunday December 13,2015 : ADELSON MOVES AGAINST TRADEMARK OFFENDERS
Las Vegas Sands awarded TRO against unknown owners of online casinos.
Sheldon Adelson's Las Vegas Sands land casino group in the USA is on another purge of online casinos illegally using its trademarks and titles, it appears from filings in the US District Court for Nevada.
Following the filings, U.S. District Judge Andrew Gordon ordered web-hosting company GoDaddy.com and internet registrar Domains by Proxy LLC to remove or disable the 15 domain names immediately and put them "on hold and lock" this week, preventing their transfer.
The judge also granted the Las Vegas Sands Corporation a temporary restraining order against the unknown owners of 15 online gambling sites that prominently feature the resort's trademarked "Venetian" logo on their websites.
