The World Intellectual Property Organization says Rusli briefly redirected Web surfers who visited the address to a pornographic site "to attract (Slim's) attention."
The Geneva-based agency said Wednesday that Rusli should transfer the domain to Slim, who holds a trademark on his name.
Slim was named the world's second-richest man last year by Forbes magazine.
