WIPO: Football makes up large number of domain cases

football
According to the WIPO, it heard some 2,107 complaints on 4,688 domains in 2009. What is more interesting, however, is that a large number of these complaints involved football domains.

“Football featured strongly in the WIPO Centre’s 2009 caseload, including the upcoming World Cup,” the WIPO said. One of the more notable domains disputed includes www.fifaworldcup2010.com. EPL teams Fulham, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham and West Ham all brought cases against registrants last year.

Although the number of domain disputes filed with the organisation, the number of domains involved in arbitration has actually risen by 18.5% since 2008.
