LAS VEGAS — The domain name XVideoNow.com has been ordered transferred by a WIPO arbitrator over to the company behind XVideos.com.

XVideoNow.com, currently not resolving, had been operating as an adult tube site for years.

But once WGCZ S.R.O. — operators of XVideos.com and XNXX.com, among others — got wind of the site, the Czechoslovakia-based company filed a claim with WIPO, which resolves domain name disputes.

Last week, WIPO arbitrator Johan Sjöbeck agreed with WGCZ S.R.O.’s claims and found the site’s operator, Adam Hokke, was cybersquatting with the domain. WGCZ S.R.O. has held a U.S. trademark on "XVideos" since 2012.

“The evidence in the case before the panel indicates that the disputed domain name, XVideoNow.com, has intentionally been registered and used in an attempt to attract, for commercial gain, Internet users to the respondent's website by creating a likelihood of confusion with the complainant's trademark as to the source, sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of the website or of a product or service on the website,” Sjöbeck said in his order.

Attorney Marc Randazza of Randazza Legal Group, who filed the cybersquatting claim on behalf of WGCZ S.R.O., has filed scores of such claims for the company, which has benefited from taking over and re-branding the transferred sites.

Those sites scooped up by WGCZ S.R.O. in the past year through arbitration include XVideos.co, HD-XVideos.com, New-XVideos.com XVideos.nu, XVideosToday.net, XVideosDaily.com and XVideos.net.
