After several months of negotiations between the two companies CD-writer.com Ltd processed the transfer of www.microboards.eu to MicroBoards Technology Ltd. MicroBoards UK had previously failed to register the domain name within the allowed control period thus allowing third partys and no-trademark holders to register any un-registered domain. Fortunately Microboards Technology Ltd (the UK are of MicroBoards) benefited from the fact that their technology and business partner CD-writer.com Ltd registered the name on their behalf.
Nic Ranshaw MD of CD-writer.com Ltd had this to say, “When we saw that the MicroBoards domain name was unregistered we had only one option. At CD-writer.com we pride ourselves on our proactive approach to the internet and if we see an opportunity we take it. Our intention was never to warehouse the MicroBoards domain name and we recognised that Microboards would be gratefull that the name had been secured by a friendly party”. Ranshaw continued, “We would like to think that the goodwill represented by CD-writer.com by securing and transferring the domain to MicroBoards without cost will help to strengthen the relationship between our two companies”.
No one from MicroBoards Technology was available for comment.
