Just day ago, a Battlefield 3 fanboy who bought ModernWarfare3.com over two years ago, redirected the domain to the official Battlefield 3 website. He later took it down and created a Call of Duty-hating site with the domain, urging people to purchase Battlefield 3 instead. Well Activision’s had enough of it, and has filed a complaint against the fanboy.
These wars, I tell ya.
The mega-publisher filed the complaint with National Arbitration Forum on Friday, arguing that the person behind ModernWarfare3.com “has no right or legitimate interest in the Domain Name,” a violation of the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, and wants the site under its own control.
My only question is, why didn’t Activision secured the URL? I mean you know Modern Warfare is your top franchise, you should secure that thing up to Modern Warfare 100; seriously.
Anyway, we’ll see how this goes.
