Apple Now Owns iPods.com, Still Takes You to Creepy MP3 Site
Apple's complaint filed with the World Intellectual Property Organization requesting the domain "www.ipods.com" be turned over to them has finally been decided and ownership will soon be transferred to Apple.
iPods.com was registered to someone other than Apple a couple months after the first iPod launched way back before the dawn of time.* However, Apple only recently filed a complaint asking that the domain be handed over to them. Apple has previously paid out the ears for domains like the $4.5million they spat out for iClouds.com.
This time though, Apple may acquire the domain dirt cheap. Apple filed a complaint with the WIPO citing violations of the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy which reads as follows:
Under the policy, most types of trademark-based domain-name disputes must be resolved by agreement, court action, or arbitration before a registrar will cancel, suspend, or transfer a domain name. Disputes alleged to arise from abusive registrations of domain names (for example, cybersquatting) may be addressed by expedited administrative proceedings that the holder of trademark rights initiates by filing a complaint with an approved dispute-resolution service provider.
*I'm fully aware the dawn of time did not occur 9 years ago when the iPod launched. Or am I......

Creepy? It's just one of those generic filler websites that can be seen millions of times over on the net, usually if you mis-spell the website.

In 1999, I sold lexsis.net to lexis-nexis for only $65K. the deal was not closed until 2006 though. look it up, its public information.

OMG www. apples.com redirects you to mushrooms.com, www. iphones.com is a random "unauthorized" iphone website, www. ipad.com is just a random "coming soon" page.
Better get on all that Apple, after your done suing the rest of the world.
