Oracle Tips by Burleson 

Web Stalkers
Chapter 6 -
Cyber Theft


Since this landmark 1999 law was passed, the ACPA has been used many times to punish web thieves.  The ACPA requires “bad faith” intent, and this malice is a prerequisite for punishment of a web crook.

In the famous case of Coca-Cola Co. v. Purdy (382 F.3d 774), the investigation revealed that Mr. Purdy has published counterfeit web pages including,,,, and,  a website designed to appear like the Washington Post:

During a telephone conversation with counsel for the Post entities on July 8, Purdy acknowledged that he had published a counterfeit front page at and claimed that his actions were protected by the First Amendment.

Purdy appears to be one of the zealot types of cyber-personalities as detailed in Chapter 2, Understanding Web Personalities.  His fake Washington Post website proudly proclaimed, “Abortion is Murder.”  Even more distasteful, it contained disgusting and offensive photographs of aborted fetuses next to the Coca Cola logo with this caption:

Things Don't Always Go Better With Coke.
Abortion is Murder —
'The Real Thing.'
