Apple now holds the key to ipad3.com within a month after it claimed the domain. Right now Kilpatrick Townsend and Stockton hold possession of the domain. The previous owner of ipad3.com did not want to spare time for an arbitration panel to give their verdict. It all happened as soon as a complaint was given by Apple to the World Intellectual Property Organization. The Whois record has been updated to let the world know that the ownership has shifted hands from Global Access to Kilpatrick Townsend and Stockton. Earlier, those who searched for this domain usually came across a couple of links instead of the product details.
According to the reports given by Fusible.com, so far, there are no indications of Apple changing its marketing strategies. All that is expected is the name change to its page which you can find on Apple.com. As soon as a case was registered with the World Intellectual Property Organization, the domain was transferred to Apple. It happened within a week. This is what is stated in an article on “The Next Web.” Further information states that Global Access launched the site in January 2010. The company has its headquarters in the Isle of Man. Its complaints against AOL and Mastercard went futile.
The Whois record has no indications anywhere that Apple is the owner of the domain. However, it is predicted that Apple will acquire it within a short time frame. As soon as the case was registered, things have been working in favor of Apple so far. Although, there are no concrete plans and strategies as to what Apple will be doing with their new domain, one thing is for sure. It has ensured that its competitors will never be able to double-cross with its intellectual property. This is one of the key reasons why Apple purchases a lot of domains which coincide with its products.
To be honest, iPad 3 never hit the market; nevertheless, it was known to so many users across the globe. That is why viewers were not able to find what they wanted when they typed the domain on their browsers. So the complaint was supposed to favor Apple anyways. Fearing such a situation, Global Access played it smart by handing over the domain to KTS. It is a law firm that has been employed under Apple for quite some time. As CNET has approached Apple for more information, you can expect more information in the near future!
