Amazon Wins Domain Name Dispute
"A Web site owner arguing that online retailer Amazon.com Inc. cannot lay exclusive claim to the name of the world's second longest river to sell goods on the Internet learned today that ... well, yes it can. Arbitrators for the United Nations copyright agency WIPO told the Arizona man behind amazonbooks.net and amazonbooks.org to hand them over to Seattle-based Amazon.com, which sells products around the globe."
Text of WIPO domain name decision, dated August 4, 2003, Amazon.com, Inc. v. Paul Horner, Case No. D2003-0071.
