Apple Files To Take Over iPad3.com Domain

Domain Name Wire reports that Apple has made a request with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) to take over iPad3.com. Even though the new iPad isn’t called the iPad 3 as many expected pre-release, Apple still wants ownership…

iPad3.com was registered in January 2010 and is currently owned by a company called Global Access in Isle of Man. Global Access is no stranger to cybersquatting complaints, having lost challenges by big companies such as AllState, AOL, an MasterCard.

The domain name is currently parked. Its traffic is rotated to various domain parking services with Above.com.

It’s not super surprising that Apple would move to take over the domain. Sometimes people exploit these domain names or ones similar to Apple’s trademarks to direct unsuspecting users to advertisement filled sites for their own personal gain.

For obvious reasons Apple doesn’t want that happening since many still refer to the new iPad as the iPad 3. Last month Apple requested to gain ownership of iPhone5.com, and ultimately gained possession a few weeks later.

Should Apple worry about these domain squatters?
