    A UDRP was filed at the National Arbitration Forum (NAF) against the Micro.Center domain name. The complainant in the UDRP is Micro Electronics, Inc., the company that operates on the MicroCenter.com domain name. The UDRP decision was published this morning, and the complainant won. The domain name will be transferred to the complainant unless the respondent opts to litigate.

    The complainant contended that it “owns seven trademark registrations for the mark MICRO CENTER issued by the USPTO.” The respondent contended that its “domain name is “micro” and the Internet extension for this domain name is “<.center>”. Complainant does not have trademark rights to the expression “micro” or the Internet extension “<.center>”.”
