Nintendo Loses Appeal for WiiU.com Domain

Just because you are a big powerful international corporation, that doesn’t always give you the right to something that isn’t rightfully yours. Nintendo found this out the hard way recently when the company was denied its appeal to own the WiiU.com domain. Looks like Nintendo was nine years late to the party.

The unknown owner of the domain first registered it in 2004, well before Nintendo ever debuted or released the original Wii console, let alone the Wii U. It's thought that the name was simply part of a mass registration of four-letter domains and, in this case, the owner struck gold.
