MySpace Wins Fight for myspace.co.uk Domain Name

MySpace Wins Fight for myspace.co.uk Domain Name

When I first read the title I was annoyed and chalked up anoth­er point of why I don’t like MySpace. But this lit­tle snip­pet kin­da made me change my mind, I still don’t like MySpace but I also don’t like how the use of the site appears to have been changed.

How­ev­er, the rul­ing, made by inde­pen­dent expert Antony Gold, found that while myspace.co.uk had ini­tial­ly been used to offer email ser­vices and mini-web­sites to sub­scribers it had changed its mod­el to exploit MySpace’s pop­u­lar­i­ty.

TWS start­ed to use the myspace.co.uk address to lead to a ‘parked’ web page with adver­tise­ments for social net­work­ing web­sites includ­ing MySpace.

The arbi­tra­tor decid­ed that this was evi­dence of abu­sive reg­is­tra­tion, that TWS was prof­it­ing unfair­ly from the asso­ci­a­tion with MySpace.
