Google wins domain case against an Indian
New Delhi: Web search giant Google has won a case of a domain name against an Indian at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). A person named Harit Shah of Gujarat had earlier offered to surrender the disputed domain name www.googblog.com, for which Google had informed the WIPO that the name was mixing up with its trademarks on which the company already has rights.

The domain name has been ordered to be shifted to Google, according to the information available with the WIPO. Earlier, to solve the issue, a pre-complaint correspondence between the Google and Shah had broken down.

WIPO is a specialized United Nations (UN) agency which is responsible of developing a balanced and accessible international system in the terms of intellectual property rights.

Shah had already registered the disputed name last year in September. A complaint of cybersquatting was launched by Google against Shah on 26th of March 2009, as per the information available with WIPO.

Commenting on the issue, Shah said, "I was in a bad faith that I can legally keep the domain googblog.com. I really did very unfair to Google. I sincerely apologize to Google for infringement by misusing their intellectual property."

Operating from California, the firm has been using the name 'GOOG' in the NASDAQ listings since 2004.

Under the elements of Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, the WIPO had found that the consent to transfer the request can replace the need to assess the matter, and had then ordered the transfer of the domain name to Google.

Google or WIPO must force corporate to take control of their intellectual property. In this case, WIPO must force google to buy all domains which are their property. So this kinda issue will not be raised in future or reduce IP violation in future. By not doing this, this kinda rights are free flowing in market, ready to purchase and after a good publicity, this kind of corporates will come and demand for removal which is wrong too.
