Domain dispute between Google and Weblink Ltd. may be settled
MOSCOW, April 6 - RAPSI. The Moscow Commercial Court has postponed for a possible amicable agreement the hearings into Google's lawsuit to prohibit the use of the googl.ru and gugl.ru domains.
The lawsuit was submitted against Weblink.
During the hearing on Friday, Weblink submitted an application on postponing the hearings for concluding an amicable agreement.
In turn, the plaintiff's lawyer objected to the satisfaction of the lawsuit.
"Initially, when the negotiations only commenced, we said if the agreement is not signed before the hearing, the dispute will be settled in court. My client wants the dispute to be settled as soon as possible," he said.
The court has set interim measures upon Google's request and banned the transfer of the domains to third parties other than the plaintiff. The court has also prohibited the transfer of the domain support rights to other registrars, or the forgoing of the administration rights to the domains.
Google is the largest Internet company in the world. Its net profit rose 15 percent to $9.74 billion under the U.S. GAAP in 2011 year on year.
