EMI Group has won a "cyber-squatting" case filed with the World Intellectual Property Organization.

EMI entered a complaint with the Geneva-based patents and intellectual property authority on Aug. 14, disputing the Web site emi-musicgroup.info. The respondent in the case was the curiously-titled E MI musicgroup, based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, a business WIPO admitted to having no background on.

WIPO found that the domain was an advertising Web site offering sponsored links to other sites, and the service failed all three points of its testing procedure. The administrative panel ordered the domain name be transferred to EMI.

Social networking service MySpace won a separate case with WIPO over the disputed site, myspacetv.org.
