Nintendo lose their case to gain control of WiiU.com

Nintendo tried and failed to secure WiiU.com

| Internet & Websites News | Posted: Jul 1, 2013 2:34 am

WiiU.com was registered quite some time ago, on January 13, 2004 to be precise. No reason has been given by WIPO, with WiiU.com currently a placeholder page that redirects its visitors to a bunch of links, some of which are related to the WiiU, some to other sites.
