After what was a pretty apparent focus of a ICANN anti-squatting policy, it seems Google has now gained control of GooglePlay.com from an ad-serving Japanese squatter. Google filed a censure underneath ICANN anti-squatting regulations, and after a case’s brief army during a National Arbitration Forum (a non-court though legally contracting decision-making physique in a US), Google now shows as a registrant of GooglePlay.com.
A discerning ‘whois’ of a domain yields a following:
While a page in doubt still loads, it shows that a domain has been seized (according to Google Translate), and a change in registrant information customarily indicates that possibly a squatter has given adult a domain freely, or a preference has been reached and a domain seized by ICANN, commencement a routine of send of ownership.
Either way, it looks like GooglePlay.com is during slightest on a approach into a hands of Google.
