Microsoft must prove that the resident filed the domain in bad faith, which includes disrupting the domain to prevent its trademark owner from claiming it, attempting to sell it to the trademark owner or attempting to attract web users to a site by creating "a likelihood of confusion."

Microsoft filed the dispute, case 1501205, on May 23, two days after the reveal of its next-gen console. Only one complaint was filed for both domain names.
