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 Xboxone.com and Xboxone.net 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?
