    Nintendo has lost the fight to gain control over the domain WiiU.com after a complaint was filed back in February.

    The decision was posted to the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) website on Saturday, confirming that Nintendo's complaint to gain control of WiiU.com was denied, as reported by Fusible.

    The domain has been registered by a company in Burlington, Massachusetts since 2004.

    Fusible notes that WiiU.com was put up for auction, yet once Nintendo filed the complaint with WIPO the listing was removed. It appears that Nintendo will have to pay a sizable amount in order to have control of the domain.

    WiiU.com is currently a placeholder site containing link to both Wii U and non-WiiU content.

    There has been no explanation provided as to why Nintendo lost the case.
