Xbox One Domains Owned By UK Resident, Whom Microsoft Is Now Suing

Xbox One Domains Owned By UK Resident, Whom Microsoft Is Now Suing

Microsoft named its new console Xbox One, however the domain name has been owned by a UK resident for 2 years. What does a software giant do, then? Pay the guy some cash or take him to court? The latter is the order of the day, reports Fusible, as Microsoft has filed a complaint with the National Arbitration Forum (NAF) in hopes of capturing the domains for its use.

Both and are owned by a UK resident, who’s owned the domains for about 2 years.

Maybe MS wanted to purchase the domains from the guy and he probably wanted too much? Or maybe they simply decided not to give him a dime and chose the legal path instead?

How much would you charge MS if you were the one who owned the Xbox One domains?

I’d go with about $100,000. What did you say?

    Hum… And what are they suing him for? I mean, what is he guilty of?

    if i was a judge i would force ms to pay him royalties for using the sites and damages for forcing a court case. since i’m not a judge odds are the poor guy will have his pants sued off of him simply for buying domain names.
