Google  has finally acquired the domain name AndroidTV.com

Google  lost a UDRP on the domain name back in March 2014 after the panel said the dispute was outside the types of disputes the UDRP was set up for.  You can read our summary of the UDRP here.

In April 2014 Google announced that they were launching a product called Android TV.

Google did in fact launch Android TV and has been using the domain name Android.com/tv.

The domain name was updated over the weekend and Google is now the registrant of the domain at the brand protection company MarkMonitor.com

At this point we do not know if the domain name was “sold” or part of a settlement between the owner of the domain and Google.

In A comment to our post back in March 2014,  someone alleging to be the owner of the domain said at the time:

“Well the fact of the matter is that there is a 3 prong fork when deciding an ICANN case and the Complainant has to prove all 3. The facts speak loudly. Google did not prove bad faith for one as AndroidTV.com was registered in 2006 and was first to us Android TV in commerce before Google. Another point is Android TV has common law trademark rights over Google.

The whole bias of the case was bad faith which it was not.

Google had no merit in this one.”

Google does not own the domain name Android.TV
