Apple targeting porn sites that use iPhone name
According to Domain Name Wire, Apple has filed a complaint with the World Intellectual Property Organization against seven pornpgraphy sites that use the iPhone name as part of their web address. Even the site iPhone4S.com, which is merely the name of the Cupertino based tech firm's latest smartphone model, features hard-core pornography.

Because a privacy service is blocking the "Whois" information of the sites, the real owners of the offensive  web pages cannot be found. Interestingly, the domain name iPhone4S.com was registered in August 2008, more than three years before Apple released a phone with that name. Apple owns the domain name iPhone4.com, but doesn't have a connection to iPhone3GS.com and iPhone3.com.

The World Intellectual Property Agency is part of the United Nations. It is involved in settling disputes revolving around domain name ownership through the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy, which applies to top-level domains including .com, .net, and .org. The seven domain names in Apple's complaint are iphonecamforce.com, iphonecam4s.com, iphoneporn4s.com, iphonesex4s.com, iphonexxxforce.com, iphone4s.com and porn4iphones.com.

WIPO has settled disputes involving Apple. This past July, the organization ordered that the domain name iPod.com be turned over tp the tech company. And when WIPO fails, there is still good ol' cash. In April, Apple bought "iCloud.com" from Xcerion allegedly paying $4.5 million for the domain name.

NO... You didn't... You chose to name yourself after some loser from a failed reality show, that had an obssesive love for professional wrestling.

WHAT A TOOL YOU ARE.

The "some loser from a failed reality show" part of your comment actually made me do a bit of research (wiki) on the miz. I didn't know that before.

So now I see The Miz as an amalgam of The Situation and John Cena.

Miz You obviously didn't read phonearenas very own report about a week ago that statistical studies have determined that the majority of apple buyers and users are teenagers

Is that why 97% of of exchange users use iPads and 66% use iPhones.


Android is great if you're broke and need a bargain bin phone.

You gotta love the false instilled "Im rich look at me with an iphone,ive arrived" swagger from islaves with condescending thoughts that Android is for poor people,its thoroughly and Unequivocally reinforcing the statement that iphones are viewed by their primary base band as a fashion statement and as social acceptance item.

A daily laugh guaranteed!!

A whole load of Android phones being better and higher than tech than iphones of course but also 'cheaper' due to carrrier networks being able to and free to offer better subsided prices on these phones where as most networks as phonearena has reported are chained to the groin by massive controlling contracts by Apple and thus can't offer the same subsidation. Islaves of course simply see the higher iphone price meaning their more important and richer as their product costs more despite the false economy of it!

Unfortunately I bought my HD7 3 weeks before the price dropped. Then due to a snafu in my contract I wasn't eligible for my rebate. /ihateeverything

Dude, watching porn on your phone or PC is like having unprotected sex. You will pick up a virus, the difference is that a phone/PC virus can be cleaned. A human virus can kill you! If you are going to watch porn, go buy it at your local Ma & Pa porn shop, but if you are going to the web then watch out! Don’t go to these sites or you might get burned! lol

Its funny how apple call it the iphone really,the I meaning the phone is all personally yours when the sad truth is the phone is severely locked down and controlled by apple to all the restrictions they dictate almost to the point where they view the buyers as those holding their property.

Seeing Some of the comments coming from apple to its users these days when they report faulty antennas etc the I could also stand for how apple views their minions, ie. maybe the I stands for 'idiots,idiotic,impest........or more suitable here for this article.........iconolagny!!!!! lol

33. remixfa (Posts: 13907; Member since: 19 Dec 2008)


no, its a mind trick. the i simply means i. it helps to trick the consumer mind into an owner mentality when buying it. iphone flips into "my phone" in the mind.

one thing apple is good at is marketing. they are very good at marketing.

THEY SHOULD JUST RENAME THE WEBSITES TO ANDROPORN.COM, EVOPORN.COM , PORNFORDROID.COM OR XXXGALAXYS.COM
.. LOL THERE WOULD BE NO ISSUES WITH THESE NAMES

17. taco50 (banned) (Posts: 5506; Member since: 08 Oct 2009)


There would be. No one would visit the sites because they've never heard of those names. These websites are trying to cash in on the worlds best smartphone.

More like theses websites know that apples user base are statistically primarily teenagers and thus their search for apple and porn will combine together for iphonecam4s.com giving maximum arousal!!

I think this is funny. I dont blame apple for doing this because people could try amd go to there products and accidently go to a porn site. I hae down this favebook.com i think was my mispell. Companies know you will mispell then all of the sudden porn sites appear. Apple doesnt want that happening to their customers.

Looks like this website came before the 4S.
Maybe Apple should find better names for their phone models, lol..
