Google wins domain case against an Indian
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.
