The claim against the apparent cyber squatter was filed in February with the World Intellectual Property Organization. The domain is currently registered to a company in Burlington, Mass., and has been since 2004. The company apparently attempted to auction the domain name just before Nintendo's complaint, but removed the listing shortly after the case was filed.
WiiU.com currently houses ads for online education, "Wii 2," "New Wii Games" and titles such as "Mario Bros U," which further includes a link to Nintendo's official site.
No details on why the complaint was denied have been provided at this time.
