ModernWarfare3.com owner outed by GoDaddy

Joystiq:

Miami, Florida resident Anthony Abraham has been sitting on a very valuable URL for approximately two and a half years at this point. And though he’d hidden his identity through his URL registrant, GoDaddy.com, via its “Domains By Proxy” hiding service, a domain dispute from Modern Warfare 3 publisher Activision dissolved that shield this past weekend. Abraham is the owner of ModernWarfare3.com who has been seemingly trolling Activision for days now.

The publisher filed a domain-name dispute with the National Arbitration Forum, claiming that the site owner violates Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy. Rather than stand by Abraham, GoDaddy instead lifted the electronic shroud hiding the URL registrant’s name, opening him up to direct contact with Activision (and by extension, we imagine, Activision’s legal team).

Moral of the story?

Domain privacy isn’t.

    I hope his Battlefield privileges are revoked.
