NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma is suing a Dallas man who officials say violated the university's intellectual property rights by registering an Internet domain name to sell it for a profit later.
Hugh Michael Glenn, 43, said he was using the domain name www.soonernetwork.com for legitimate purposes.
OU filed the lawsuit in Oklahoma City federal court Wednesday. The lawsuit alleges Glenn bought the domain name with the intent of selling it to OU at a profit, a process known as cybersquatting. The university is seeking an injunction barring Glenn from using any of OU's trademarks in the future.
OU also is seeking $100,000 in damages, any profits Glenn has received from the website and rights to the soonernetwork.com domain name.
