Microsoft seeks to acquire Xbox One-related domains from current owner

NEWS | ? Comments |

Author: Peter Grimm  

For months, Microsoft has held off on registering domains for the newly-unveiled Xbox One, registering other names (like Xbox 8 and Xbox Fusion) and keeping everyone from accurately guessing what the console would be called. But now that the console is unveiled and Microsoft is ready to grab Xbox One-related domains, it’s been revealed that someone already beat them to the punch.

Recently, a complaint filed by Microsoft appeared on the National Arbitration Forum (the company that takes care of reports of domain squatting and URL trademark infringement) over the domains for XboxOne.com and XboxOne.net. The complaint (case number 1501205 on the NAF database) seeks to acquire the domains from one Krasimir Hristov Ivanov, a London resident who registered them on December 29, 2011 (according to the WHOIS pages for the domains).

So how does Microsoft intend to win this battle? To do that, the company has to prove to the NAF that the domains are identical enough to its Xbox One trademark that people could be misled by the URLs. Additionally, it will have to prove that Ivanov has no right to the trademark and that the domains were registered in bad faith (that means, in a nutshell… that you should read this to see what it means). 

Fusible points out that Microsoft has usually come out on top in domain spats, so it’s highly unlikely that things won’t go its way this time.
