Apple Gains Control of Rogue iPhone Porn Sites

Ryan Whitwam

Apple is a family-friendly company, and it just wouldn’t do to have any inappropriate shenanigans going on using Apple trademarks, right? Well, Apple certainly thinks so. To those ends, Apple is now the proud owner of seven adult website domains that included the term iPhone in the address. The iPhone maker filed suit with the World Intellectual Property Organization to secure the sites.

Apple was willing to go to court over pages like iphone4s.com, porn4iphones.com, and others, but dropped the suit when the owner opted to hand them over rather than face Apple’s unstoppable legal machine. The sites forwarded to mobile pron sites that were geared toward devices like the iPhone. In fact, the sites still point there (so watch yourself at work). Now that Apple has access to the domains, it might want to do something about that.

The iphone4s domain (how did Apple not buy this before?)  is likely to redirect to Apple’s page, but the other more explicit ones will probably go nowhere.
