Citrix and Webex Fight Over Cybersquatting

By Deane Barker on February 5, 2005

WebEx accuses Citrix of cybersquatting: Odd to see this happen between two well-known companies. From what I’ve read, Citrix’s actions were blatantly in bad faith.

WebEx claims its rival registered domain names confusingly similar to its recently launched MyWebExPC service, which competes head to head with Citrix’s GoToMyPC.

[…] Shah said that Citrix registered the domain names in the period between WebEx filing the MyWebExPC trademark and announcing the service on January 24, 2004. Citrix used the URLs to redirect traffic to the Citrix GoToMyPC site.
