How far do you want to take this?
Only to these quotes right here: (emphasis mine in all quotes)
A federal judge in South Carolina entered a judgment against Bright Builders Inc. on counts of contributory trademark infringement and unfair trade practices for allegedly assisting in the construction and hosting of the e-commerce site CopyCatClubs.com.
Trademark Infringement ... I think we can all get that easily, they probably got too close to the 'real thing' or even used the 'real thing' or something like that ... Simple.
Assisting in the Construction & Hosting. They didn't go get the host separately ... Bright Builder's Inc. was involved in BOTH. The HOST and the SEO should have both known, because they were BOTH Bright Builder's Inc. That's why the suit is only against Bright Builder's Inc.
I know it wasn't in Mass, but:
Both Massachusetts and United States laws prohibit the use of "unfair or deceptive" practices by businesses. These practices are regulated by the Federal Trade Commission at the federal level and by the Attorney General's Office of Consumer Protection at the state level.
Both the federal and state laws prohibit a series of specific practices and, in addition, prohibit any other practice that is determined to be unfair or deceptive to the consumer.
