Nintendo lose their case to gain control of WiiU.com

Nintendo tried and failed to secure WiiU.com

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.
