ModernWarfare3.com Domain Battle Heats Up

Last week, we showed you the hilarious antics by someone that is definitely not EA. Whoever this person is (not EA) owns the domain for ModernWarfare3.com and was using it to redirect unsuspecting internet travelers to the competition's website. Instead of hitting a webpage for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, users were instead greeted by the Battlefield 3 official site. But this firefight has only just begun, it seems.
Activision has filed a domain name dispute with the National Arbitration Forum, citing that the domain is being used to directly support one of its "principal competitors".
That's not the only shots fired, either. The ModernWarfare3.com website doesn't redirect to Battlefield 3 any longer and is now a website clearly devoted to trashing the Call of Duty franchise. The new site reads:
The site is also now claiming that it's "under siege" presumably referring to Activision's domain dispute and has posted in response the following video cheekily poking fun at Activision's upcoming shooter.
