An adult Internet site is claiming that Netscape's new 'smart browsing' feature could infringe its copyright.
Whitehouse.com, like many adult sites, relies heavily on misdirected traffic, when confusion is caused in the Net address system by similar domains or misspelt words.
The site?s owner, Dan Parisi, claims that, as smart browsing - part of the Communicator 4.5 software - finds sites through keywords if a users doesn?t know an exact address, it could wrongly direct visitors away from its site.
Parisi, who also owns the netscapesucks.com site, has obtained a trademark for the whitehouse.com domain and claims that Netscape is not complying with established trademarks.
New York lawyers Armon & Sabatini have been enlisted to fight the case and Parisi has invited other domain name holders to join him in the possible lawsuit.
Netscape has not responded to the claims.
