Activision Wins Domain Fight

Activision has prevailed in a fight with the owners of, a website that first came to light in July because it lampooned the Call of Duty series and Activision – and redirected visitors to the official Battlefield 3 site. Clearly a violation of naughty internet rule 370.

Activision filed a complaint with the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers claiming that the domain was being used in "bad faith" and asked that it be turned over to its control. A three-member panel of the National Arbitration Forum ruled in Activision's favor and ordered the domain holder, "Anthony Abraham," to turn it over. Despite being amusing to Battlefield 3 fans, the site clearly represented Activision's upcoming game, so there was really no way that Abraham could have prevailed…

The game ships for PC, Xbox 360, Wii, and DS on November 8.
