Apple Gains Ownership Of iPad3.com

And just like that folks, Apple comes in and gains ownership of iPad3.com. Last week, Apple made the request to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) seeking ownership. It looks like that is happening…

Within the last 24 hours the domain has been transferred to Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton, which is a legal firm that has represented Apple in the past (As seen in the picture above via).

The Next Web reports that there has been no ruling as of yet on the domain, and that complaint is still active on the UDRP website. That suggests that the previous owner didn’t put up a battle and simply handed the domain over to Apple.

Global Access was the original company who had ownership of the domain, and apparently this is nothing new for them. The Isle of Man company has a strong habit of swooping up popular brand infringing domain names. Previously they have lost domain cases to AOL and Mastercard. So obviously they do this with the intent to make a profit. Sadly, if Apple comes after a small company, they really don’t stand a chance.

Apple can sleep better knowing that iPad3.com won’t cause any confusion in the future. Companies like Global Access purchase brand infringing domains and point them to pages full of ads to try and profit from the traffic.
