The latest development is as follows: The Nissan Motor Co appealed the summer 2004 decision by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, firstly to the Court of Appeals and then to the US Supreme Court. Both appeals have now been rejected.

    "The US Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal by car giant Nissan Motor Co over the domain names and, following a decision by a California Appeals Court not to order the transfer of the domains, according to the Los Angeles Times."
