HBO has won a cybersquatting dispute over the domain name for its popular True Detective show.

The company filed a complaint with National Arbitration Forum under the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy, arguing that the owner of the domain was cybersquatting.

A National Arbitration Forum panelist came to an easy decision in favor of HBO. A parked page at includes ad links for “HBO True Detective” and “HBOGO”. The owner of the domain didn’t bother to respond to the allegations, either.

True Detective has aired for three seasons and featured stars including Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson, Colin Farrell, and Vince Vaughn.

Fabricio Vayra of Perkins Coie LLP represented HBO.
