    WPX Energy is suing an unknown individual for trademark infringement and related fraud.

    The Tulsa-based petroleum and natural gas exploration company filed the lawsuit Tuesday in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma.

    WPX’s request for a temporary restraining was filed Wednesday. It states that neither GoDaddy.com, nor Domains By Proxy LLC, would provide the identity of John Doe but that WPX Energy intended to immediately issue a subpoena to Domains By Proxy LLC to ascertain the true identity of the defendant.
