Apple Goes To War Against iPhone Porn Sites

Apple has targeted a number of mobile pornography websites that use the company’s popular smartphone in a bid to attract you to their saucy, one-hand wares. The Cupertino company has filed a complaint with the World Intellectual Property Organization which targets seven hardcore websites in total, all of which use the word ‘iPhone’ in their domain names.

While some of the domains quite clearly describe the content that is offered, such as porn4iPhones.com, others appear to be very innocent, like iPhone4S.com, which is the name of Apple’s latest iPhone and would be expected to point to Apple’s own website. Other domain names targeted by Apple include iPhonecamforce, and iPhonecam4S.

It is reported that the owner of the domains is unknown, with a privacy service in place that shields their personal ‘Who is’ information. The iPhone4S.com domain was registered back in August 2008, way before Apple announced its iPhone 4S, and even its iPhone 4.

This isn’t the first time Apple has turned to the World Intellectual Property Organization to solve a domain name dispute. Just this July, the organization demanded the domain iPods.com be transferred to Apple, and it now points to the company’s website.
