Some years ago, some dude who owns Corinthians.com and used it to publish Bible verses from its namesake lost the name Corianthians.com to Corianthians football club of Brazil via a WIPO decision (This decision was later reversed by a US court) If a company can come after someone for their name and even claim common law use, what stops a country from going to arbitration for its name.com? If madonna can sue and be awarded Madonna.com, what stops America from sueing for you know what or other host of coutries sueing for their domains?.
Just a case for thought. I will like to read your views
