Trademark action against Video-Pro for its use of the domain name hardwarezone.com.sg. Plaintiff contends Video-Pro is passing itself off as the plaintiff's website by using the "sg" top level domain. Defendant argues "hardwarezone" is a combination of two generic words which are commonly used to describe websites with computer hardware content. Defendant is also countersuing for defamation and copyright infringement, based on plaintiff's alleged posting of Video-Pro price lists and two defamatory statements on the hardwarezone.com site.
