Nintendo’s authorized makes an attempt to nab the WiiU.com area have failed.
Final February, Nintendo filed a cybersquatting complaint with the World Intellectual Property Forum to snatch the area. But Fusible reports that the courts sided with the current owners, who host promoting and a search bar on WiiU.com.
Nintendo could also be kicking itself for not bidding on the web site in February when it was put up for public sale and as an alternative submitting the grievance. Nintendo may have merely bid and paid a lump sum to personal WiiU.com. Now, it seems to be like they’ll have to spend rather more and undergo further bother if they need it.
Microsoft is in an analogous scenario with its makes an attempt to get XboxOne.com and just filed a complaint with the Nationwide Arbitration Discussion board in hopes of taking up each XboxOne.com and XboxOne.web, that are owned by a man within the UK who purchased the domains two years in the past.
The lesson from all this? Change into good at predicting console names, purchase the domains, and get wealthy.
