Blizzard recently acquired the domain WarcraftBattles.com last month, for no apparent reason, and now it’s gone ahead and filed a complaint against the owner of the domain HeroesofWarcraft.com to take it over as well.
The developer has filed the complaint (Case No. 1470639) with the National Arbritration Forum, hoping that the domain will be transferred to its name.
It’s possible that Heroes of Warcraft could be the title of the next Warcraft game, because as Fusible reports, to win this case, Blizzard needs to establish that the disputed domain name can easily confused with a trademark that is officially under the developer’s name.
The domain currently belongs to a UK resident and is being hosted at GoDaddy.com.
Do you think this hints at the existence (or future existence) of a new Warcraft game? Warcraft 4 is long overdue, some would say, and I, for one, would definitely like more Warcraft.
