Microsoft wins legal battle with Xbox8.com owner

According to documents made public by the National Arbitration Forum, Microsoft has successfully claimed the rights to a number of web domain names including Xbox8.com, XboxPhone.com, XboxLiveTV.com and XboxTablet.com. The document which is available on-line here, outlines the outcome of the decision in which the rights to these domains were awarded to Microsoft.

This comes as the result of a dispute filed by Microsoft with the National Arbitration Forum in May. The domains were owned by a Chinese resident by the name of Cheng Juan.

There is some speculation that Microsoft may be planning to use one or more of these domains, or will be releasing a product under a similar name. Microsoft has not commented on any future plans.
