Apple files dispute over iPhone 5 domain

Apple has filed a complaint with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) over the domain iPhone5.com. Fusible reports that the dispute appeared on WIPO’s website in the last week, and indicates that Apple is using the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy to contest ownership of the domain. As noted in the report, Apple has used similar tactics in the past with success, securing the rights to iPhone4S.com, iPods.com, and several other domains. Currently, iPhone5.com displays text-based advertisements and serves as the home to online forums. [via MDN]
