Microsoft Finally Wins Legal Dispute Over XboxOne.com Domain

By   /   Jul 17, 2013

Shortly after the reveal of the Xbox One, Microsoft filed a complaint with the National Arbitration Forum in May over the domain names XboxOne.com and XboxOne.net.

As it is with such cases, owners of the said domains weren’t giving away them away easily. Microsoft had to resort to legal means in order to get hold of the links.

That dispute has finally been concluded and Microsoft now owns both domains, according to a new report from Fusible.

Something similar is taking place with Nintendo as well who are after the domain WiiU.com; but their case is still pending. Companies usually do not register domains for their products in advance because in doing so would be confirming to the world of their future plans.

It’s best kept for after the official reveal and this has led to a sort of side-business for the average joe as well. People have already gone and registered domains like PS5, Modern Warfare 5, etc; waiting for the time when they can sell it off to the publisher at their asking rate.

The Xbox One launches in November this year for $500.
