MOSCOW, January 16 - RAPSI. The US National Arbitration Forum (NAF) has ruled that the domain shall be transferred from Russian national Gennady Bystrykh to Google, an informed source told the Izvestia newspaper.

Although the January 10 ruling has already come into force, the company that initially registered the domain, Public Domain Registry (PDR Ltd), has not yet fulfilled its requirements and the site is still accessible at the above address.

Izvestia learned that the court ruling will be implemented in 10 working days, on January 28.

The Google office in Moscow said they never comment on court cases and that they have a negative attitude to cybersquatting.

The lawsuit filed with the NAF on November 19 was heard according to the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP Rules), when cases of squatting in international domain zones (.com, .net, .org) are settled out of court.

Russian national Gennady Bystrykh registered the domain on May 1, 2012. The site allows Internet users to download Android apps for free that are on offer on Google Play.

Google representatives provided the 1997 registration of the Google trademark as proof of the dishonest use of the domain and said that Google Play was launched in March 2012 while the defendant only registered his domain two months later.

Bystrykh has not tried to justify his actions.

The world's largest Internet provider, Google increased its net profit in 2011 by 15 percent year on year to $9.74 billion.
