The upmarket resort of Gstaad has an online problem, and a person living in Monaco is to blame, according to local news reports.

In 2006, the Gstaad-Saanenland Tourist Office forgot to renew its domain name, The domain was put up for sale by auction, and bought by the Monaco resident for €26,330 ($31,500).

A year ago, the Gstaad took the case to the Commercial Court for the Canton of Bern and lost its case at the State Arbitration Court. The office has now appealed to the World Intellectual Property Organisation, one of 17 specialised offshoots of the United Nations and the accepted forum for rulings on domain rights.

A verdict is expected shortly.
