Chinese search giant posed European domain name challenge [brandrepublic.com]

Chinese search engine Baidu Inc is facing the prospect of having to bid for the domain name Baidu.eu on eBay to prevent it being sold to another company.

Baidu.eu is owned by a Dutch-based web design company, which is also called Baidu.


In a release the web design company said it was already in talks with a number of parties including "a Brazilian-based internet company, an American adult #*$! search engine and a Thai search engine."
