    Take-Two wins another dispute over a Grand Theft Auto V beta domain, 3 more to go

    Take-Two Interactive has won a dispute over the domain betagtav.com, a name that was registered back in 2011 shortly after Grand Theft Auto V’s official announcement. The game is set to be released in

    September 2013.
    Last year, the domain owner launched a website on betagtav.com that claimed to have beta keys to the game. Of course, the website was a fake. But it wasn’t the only site on the internet issuing fake beta keys. There were and are others.

    At the beginning of 2013, Take-Two filed five separate complaints with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) over ‘GTA V Beta’ domains.

    In February, it won a dispute over getgtavbeta.com, but there are still 3 more cases that are active and undecided. The cases involve gtavbeta.net, gtavbeta.org, and gta5downloadsecure.com.

    You can see a screenshot below of betagtav.com from 2012. The web address currently redirects users to Rockstar Games’ official website.

    Expect to see more complaints filed over beta domains in 2013 as scammers continue to prey on unsuspecting fans of popular video games.

    Last year, Microsoft took control of the domain names Halo4Beta.biz and Halo4Beta.net, after filing similar complaints.

    Yeah, this is the least believable of the beta key scams going around. Rockstar don't even release demos for their games. Lol.

    I agree, but would it make sense for them to start now or wait next gen for a demo release

    Glad they take these thing seriously, if for nothing else than to protect dimwitted consumers.
