wirelessxbox.com, xbox2accessory.com, xbox-360-accessories.com, xbox360-accessories.com, xbox-360-accessory.com, xbox360-accessory.com, xbox360gamerentals.com, xbox360gamesreviews.com, xboxwirelessheadset.com, x-box-accessories.com, xboxaccessories.net, xboxaccessory.com, xboxadapters.com, xboxmemory.com, xboxwirelessadapters.com, xboxwirelesscontrollers.com, xboxwirelessheadsets.com e xbox360wirelesscontrollers.com.

The forum ruled that the domain names contravened the Xbox trademark and were registered in bad faith – not to mention that they were also platforms to advertise and sell competitor products via pay-per-click advertising. Microsoft is now the owner of these domains so one battle down, many more to go…
