Apple To Take Ownership of Applecom.com & ApplePrinters.com Domains


Cybersquatting is something that’s a widespread issue on the net. This is where an individual or company buys “popular” web addresses similar to other companies in hopes of attracting accidental visitors surfing the web. This is definitely a legal issue and according to The Next Web, it looks like Apple is seeking ownership of a couple “squatted” domains. These types of issues have been happening to Apple since back when the first iPod came out.

Applecom.com and ApplePrinters.com are the domains in question. Apple filed a claim with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) on March 29, in hopes to protect their trademarks. It’s highly likely they’ll win them back too. I mean we’re talking about the World’s most valuable company. Back in November of 2010 Apple went after a handful of domains involving the word “iPhone” that pointed to obscene adult rated websites. So Apple’s definitely no stranger to the procedure.

The ironic part is, Apple doesn’t go after every domain. They still don’t have ownership of iPad.com, and the iPad came out in 2010. Same goes with iBooks.com and even iBookStore.com which are both obviously plays on Apple products and trademarks. There’s no official reasoning why Apple favors one complaint over another, but like I said I’m sure they’ll win any case involving trademark-related domain squatters.

Why do you think Apple didn’t take over iPad.com?

Speaking of iPads, we’re giving one away! Giveaway ends Sunday!

    I have to show some thanks to this writer just for bailing me out of this type of incident. Just after checking through the the web and getting notions that were not productive, I assumed my entire life was well over. Being alive devoid of the answers to the problems you have resolved by way of your entire post is a serious case, and the ones that would have negatively affected my entire career if I hadn’t noticed your website. That competence and kindness in handling all the details was very useful. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered such a point like this. I can also at this point look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for this impressive and sensible help. I won’t be reluctant to suggest your blog to any person who desires assistance on this issue.

It has been incredibly open-handed of people like you in giving publicly all that many people could possibly have made available for an ebook in order to make some bucks on their own, and in particular now that you could have tried it if you wanted. The good ideas as well served to provide a fantastic way to be certain that the rest have the identical zeal just like my own to understand a great deal more with regard to this matter.
