FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - The Hells Angels are suing a Visalia woman
who allegedly registered 20 Internet domain names that would be
likely fits for the motorcycle club and tried to auction them off
on eBay.

The U.S. District Court lawsuit filed this month accuses Fawn
Myers of cyberpiracy and trademark infringement. The Hells Angels
are seeking any profits Myers made from the domains and $100,000 in
damages for each name found to belong to the club.

The disputed Web site addresses include ha-mc.com and 81ca.com.
The suit claims the number 81 is a well-known nickname for the
Hells Angels.

Terry Myers, who answered the telephone at Fawn Myers' home but
would not say how he is related to her, said he registered the
domains and that the case is more complicated than the Angels make
it sound.
