Apple files claim to take over iPad3.com








Even though Apple opted to call its latest iPad release thenew iPad rather than the iPad 3, there are still hordes of people thatassociate the name iPad 3 with the iOS powered slate.



 



A company called Global Access in Isle of Man registered thedomain iPad3.com back in January 2010. Currently the site simply redirectstraffic to various domain-parking services and Global Access has lostcybersquatting challenges in the past to companies such as All State, AOL, andMasterCard.



 



Apple has filed a complaint with the World IntellectualProperty Organization to take control of the domain name under the uniformdomain name dispute resolution policy. Interestingly as the report notes, Appledoes not even own iPad.com, but the owner of that domain is not cybersquatting,therefore Apple would actually have to cough up a pretty penny to obtain thatone.


Apple filed a similar complaint last month against the owner of iPhone5.com. That case was closed before the WIPO made a decision on that case and the domain has since been transferred to Apple's possession.
