Talking An IDN Tale <- a must read!

There has always been some rivalry between Spanish and Portuguese.
It goes back to the year 1139, lol.

The top promoted movie now in Portugal is called “dot.com”
It’s a movie about a dispute over a domain name! Yes, indeed.

The story is that a village in Portugal has a site on a dot com domain and now a Spanish corporation wants to WIPO them over the domain, since they own a Euro copyright on the name.

Now the funny part and where I come in, lol.

The name of the village is “Águas Altas” and, the name of the domain in dispute is “AguasAltas.com”.

Now the IDN funny part, lol.

“Água” means water in Spanish and Portuguese and “Altas” means high. However, the Spanish version of water is NOT accented.

Guess, who just got the ÁguasAltas.com? L O L

And I have just put up a small site saying:

CITIZENS OF ÁGUAS ALTAS, I HAVE JUST SOLVED YOU PROBLEM.

YOU CAN HAND THE DOMAIN OVER TO THE SPANISH

I HAVE JUST BOUGHT THE CORRECT VERSION! THE OTHER, WAS INDEED, IN SPANISH!

The claim would never meet the UDRP criteria. The Portuguese should just tell them to sod off!
