NEW YORK — An arbitrator on Thursday sided with LFP's Internet division in a cybersquatting case involving a website operating as BarelyLegalPorn.com.

Barely Legal, of course, is a brand operated under Larry Flynt's umbrella of units, including DVDs under the Hustler label, its magazine that's published 13 times a year and a website offering videos and pics.   

The brand's niche is "legal teen"-themed, amounting to young women engaging in hardcore sex. LFP registered its trademark for "Barely Legal" for adult entertainment goods and services in January 1995.

LFP told an arbitrator that the website at the center of the cybersquatting case, BarelyLegalPorn.com, was registered in August by Ken Beldon and was linking to competitors' content, including websites offering “Squirting Vagina Videos,” “Mormon Missionary Studs,” and “Cuckold Wives.”

The respondent, Beldon, however, did not respond to the suit, resulting in a default judgment.

"[In] addition and having regard to the totality of the evidence, the panel finds that, in view of respondent’s registration of the disputed domain name using the 'Barely Legal' mark and in view of the conduct that respondent has engaged in when using the domain name, respondent registered and used the domain name in bad faith within the generally accepted meaning of that expression," wrote the National Arbitration Forum jurist in the case, ruling for LFP.

As a result of the ruling, the website will be transferred to LFP IP LLC.
