Site no longer shows ads related to mobile phones.
Cricket.com owner Global Cricket Ventures hasn’t formally responded to Cricket Communications’ lawsuit over the domain name Cricket.com — at least in court.
But it has drastically changes its web site to eliminate all references and ads related to mobile phones.
The site is now just a bare bones one page web site with a couple news feeds about cricket and a score board. Gone is the fantasy cricket offering and any attempt to be a “real” web site. But also gone are the many ads for cell phones.
Cricket Communications claimed Global Cricket Ventures was intentionally trading on its goodwill by masquerading as cricket sports site. The site used to have a number of ads for mobile phones. According to Cricket Communications, one of the ads was actually a hard coded Cricket Communications logo placed over a skyscraper banner.
The lawsuit will probably continue to be slowly creep forward given that Global Cricket Ventures is based on the island nation of Mauritius.
