Publishers of the Call of Duty Series, Activision, have lodged a complaint with National Arbitration Forum, an organisation that settles disputes over web addresses.
They have taken issue with modernwarfare3.com, which one would expect to promote the November release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. Prior to the dispute being lodged with the NAF, modernwarfare3.com was highly critical of Modern Warfare 3, instead suggesting gamers should look into EA’s Battlefield Bad Company 3.
At the time of posting, modernwarfare3.com no longer resolves, however I do question why Activision didn’t purchase this domain themselves to prevent this happening in the first place. When you make upwards of a billion dollars per game, snapping up a bundle of domain names has literally no bearing on your profits!
Personally, I find the Battlefield series too realistic. I prefer fast past gun on gun action which is why I’ve already pre-ordered Modern Warfare 3 🙂
