General Business Law Section 149
1.Upon the commission of a violation of this article, an application may be made by the attorney general to a court having jurisdiction to issue an injunction against the person or entity that registered the domain name in violation of this article, and upon notice to the respondent of not less than five days, the court may award injunctive relief, including the forfeiture or cancellation of the domain name. Upon receipt of a court order for injunctive relief, the registrar, domain name registry or other domain name registration authority with which the person or entity has registered the domain name with, shall comply with such order’s requirements. If it shall appear to the satisfaction of the court that the person or entity who registered the domain name with the registrar, domain name registry or other domain name registration authority, has committed a violation of this article, the court shall enjoin and restrain such person or entity from any further violation without requiring proof that any person has, in fact, been injured or damaged thereby.
2.In addition to injunctive relief, the court may fine the person or entity that registered a domain name in violation of this article, one thousand dollars for each day the violation occurs. The court may also order the transfer of the domain name as part of the relief awarded.
3.The registrar, domain name registry or other domain name registration authority shall not be liable for injunctive or monetary relief under this section except in the case of bad faith or reckless disregard, which includes a willful failure to comply with any court order.
4.In a civil action commenced under this section, a domain name shall be deemed to have its situs within the state if the domain name registrar, registry, or other domain name authority that registered or assigned the domain name is located within the state.
