TheNextWeb reports that Saurik lost a legal dispute earlier in the month of March under the uniform domain name dispute resolution policy (UDRP) and hence cannot get his trademarked domain name . The owner of Cydia.com then claimed that the domain was registered 6 years before the trademark was filed .

The new lawsuit alleges that the domain name may confuse its visitors into thinking that it is the official site maintained by cydia developers which is originally hosted at cydia.saurik.com . Saurik now seeks the domain ownership be transferred to his team vi all legal means possible.
