    hard to work out exactly what has happened from the article.

    sounds strange for the company to issue a press release with,

    "In a statement released yesterday, Mr Jackson said Poker.com Inc. is unaware of "any claim or disagreement through which the company holding the title to the domain may have reason to effect any changes to the current status and operation of www.poker.com".

    well the comments seem to suggest poker.com Inc never actually owned the domain by saying they are unaware of "any claim or disagreement through which the company holding the title to the domain may have reason to effect any changes to the current status". ie another company held the title to the domain, not poker.com?

    The comment's "In 1999, Poker.com Inc, then effectively a shell company with a different name, obtained the worldwide rights to poker.com until 2098" suggests some kind of lease agreement.

    And then the article doesn't even mention who has allegedly hijacked it.
