Microsoft files dispute to claim Xbox One domain names

New, 33 comments

Microsoft filed a claim dispute against a resident in the United Kingdom over the domain names XboxOne.com and XboxOne.net, according to the National Arbitration Forum's database.

The National Arbitration Forum helps resolve disputes as an alternative to litigation, according to its website. 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.
