Apple Grabs Ownership of Seven iPhone Sex Domains

In the web world the easiest way of ensuring that porn spammers do not create websites which are based around popular and big products of big companies is simply by owning all of the ‘pervy' domain names based on the company or product name.

Perhaps this is the logic behind a complaint which finally concluded with Apple taking over the ownership of seven domains related to iPhone and out of seven four are not at all "safe for working from their names only" reports Time.

Before this, Apple filed a complaint at the World Intellectual Property Forum a month ago about seven domain names iphonecam4s.com, porn4iphones.com, iphoneporn4s.com, iphonecamforce.com, iphonesex4s.com, iphone4s.com and iphonexxxforce.com which redirects to any porn site when visited through a mobile device.

However, even before the complaint can move further the owner of the company, whose identity has been protected, agreed to hand over the ownership of the domain names to Apple. Even though the technology giant is holding the ownership from yesterday, at present still users are redirected to a porn site.

The next thing to be observed: what will Apple do with the domain names and whether they are rehabilitated or not?
