    Default Apple Going After Adult Websites That Use Apple, iPhone Brand Names


    Apple is going after the owners of a number of web domains that look to capitalize on the name-brand power of Apple's most famous products - particularly the iPhone 4S.

    Incredibly, Apple didn't secure the domain name iPhone4s.com, and as a result, the ownership of that hot digital real estate has fallen into "the wrong hands."

    According to the folks at Domainnamewire.com, Apple "has just filed a complaint with World Intellectual Property Forum over seven domain names that include the term “iPhone” and forward to a mobile porn service."

    The handful of understandably controversial domain names (which we won't list here for obvious reasons) all incorporate the iPhone 4s name into their titles. What's more, all were registered way back in August of 2008.

    While it is ordinarily pretty easy to find out who purchased and subsequently owns a given domain name, the owners(s) of all of the domain names in questions have opted for added privacy service to conceal their whois records.

    As the folks at Domainnamewire.com pointed in out in their report today, "if you really want to p%&$-off a large company, just put some porn up on domain names that include its brands." And, apparently, Apple is just the latest corporate giant to be victimized by this practice.

    Hmm.. this is really odd. Just out of curiosity, I typed in iPhone4S.com. Low and behold, porn ads. What is that about? How does that even come about in someones head. "Hey, let's make a porn site. but to make it a better chance of people coming, we'll take the name of the new iPhone, add .com. Boom. Porn. Not to mention it'll just off Apple. Everyone hates Apple." Bollocks

    So what if they put porn on iphone4s.com it can mean i phone for s3x. with the s3x abbreviated. Not everything belongs to Apple, so I hope this site continues just remove reference to Apple.

    Apple playing bully again. If they want it removed, Apple should be made to purchase the domain names.

    as a consumer getting your rocks off, nope.
    But flash can be an awfully handy conduit to meter, distribute and sell the stuff.

    "the business" isn't about what people can see and what they can't,
    its about making as much $$$ as possible before you get caught or ripped off.

    I don't understand how these sites still exist. Does anybody actually pay for adult content anymore?I know, most people wouldn't admit it if they did. But seriously, there is so much free content to be had...

    the young people, the smart people, the people who know how to find free content, and who are "good at computer".... are also still getting laid and don't need it. :P

    for the rest $ is a universal solvent
