Apple wins domain name dispute for AppleiPods.com, MacBookPros.com

MacBook Pro

Apple continues to win domain name disputes filed with WIPO, the World Intellectual Property Organization.

AppleiPods.com, MacBookPros.com, iPhine.com, and iPodHack.com, have been ordered transferred to Apple Inc. by a WIPO panel in the latest decision.  The dispute (Case no. D2011-1390) was filed in August.

The decision comes on the heels of a big win over iPods.com back in late July. 

Full details of the ruling for Case no. D2011-1390 have not been posted on the web yet.  The decision ordering the domain names transferred to Apple, was just issued yesterday.

Two additional cases are still open with WIPO which involve appleproductsonline.com (case no. D2011-1387) and (case no. D2011-1388) which involves: applebigdiscount.com, applesdiscount.com, applessales.com, and applestorewell.com.

This week Apple also officially took ownership of wwwitunes.com and wwitunes.com in a separate case it won in late September.
