The whole truth about the & nb p; Network

In no country in the world is a well-known software maker reconciled with the emergence of domains, including its name or trademarks belonging to it. This was the case with the domain

Based on the UDRP rules, Microsoft filed a complaint with the Arbitration and Mediation Center of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). Lawyers of the corporation were able to prove all the reasons for the transfer of the domain: firstly, the domain name is similar to the plaintiff’s trademark, secondly, the domain owner does not have legal rights to this domain name and, thirdly, the domain is registered and is used in bad faith. In fact, products and services of competitors of Microsoft Corporation were advertised on this site, criticism of the company was posted, and the site itself was called “Microsoft India”.

Taking into account the above circumstances, the WIPO arbitrator found it fair to transfer the contested domain name to Microsoft. It is worth noting that, unlike in other countries of the world, there have been cases in Russia where the world giant refused to prosecute domain owners that are similar to its trademarks.

However, this is somehow not serious. Much more interesting is another event. The virtual space of the Northern Mariana Islands may soon become the refuge of mobile sites. DotMP Sunrise offers companies and organizations one way or another connected with mobile phones to register a second-level domain in the .MP zone.

In March of this year, a group of major companies tried to “knock out” the right to create and manage a public domain .mobi. It was assumed that the sites whose address will have the end of .mobi, will provide services to users of the mobile Internet, including owners of laptops and cell phones working in the WAP protocol. An application filed for the .mobi domain was the Mobi JV Alliance, consisting of nine computer and telecommunications companies, including Microsoft, Samsung and Nokia.

ICANN, which is responsible for the assignment of addresses and names on the Internet, decided to “deny” because the idea was considered useless and even harmful for the structure of the entire Network.

Without hesitation, dotMP Sunrise has deciphered the domain name of the Northern Mariana Islands as a “mobile phone” (MP) and now offers everyone to register mobile sites for $ 180 a year, while honestly stating that the price will increase.

In general, shamelessly profit from poor Internet users – worse than merchants in the bazaar. But enough of the sad things – ahead of us are waiting for the news of the “local spill.”
