LAS VEGAS — The company behind adult tube site Xnxx.com was victorious one more time in a cybersquatting claim before a WIPO arbitrator.
Again, NKL Associates S.R.O., the Czechoslovakia-based company that has trademarks for the “Xnxx” brand and is represented by industry attorney Marc Randazza, successfully argued that adult tube site XnxxHDTube.com was riding on its coattails.
The XnxxHDTube.com domain name was ordered transferred to NKL Associates after the arbitrator ruled the domain name confusingly similar to its Xnxx.com adult tube site. The operator named in the complaint was Mark Frolov.
In the past several years, Xnxx.com has filed scores of cases against copycat adult tube sites. In nearly all of the cases, NKL Associates has succeeded before WIPO arbitrators, later benefiting by taking over and re-branding the transferred sites.
NKL Associates already has been awarded the domains Xnxx.pro, HQXnxx.com, New-Xnxx.com and XnxxNow.com, and now it has been handed XnxxHDTube.com.
