Disney registers DisneyConsole.com domain name through brand protection agency

Disney Console

It may be something.  Or it may be nothing.  What is for sure is that Disney Enterprises, Inc. has registered the domain DisneyConsole.com (WHOIS).

The domain was registered this week through Corporation Service Company (CSC), a company that helps businesses protect their brands.

In January 2013, the internet was abuzz with rumors about Disney possibly working with Apple on a video game console after the tech blog Patently Apple uncovered a patent application.

The company released its sandbox video game Infinity in August 2013.  This week, Disney Interactive announced that Disney Infinity has already sold 1,000,000 of its $75 starter packs.

DisneyConsole.com may be nothing more than a defensive registration tied to Disney Infinity, either way, it’s just speculation for now.

As of today, DisneyConsole.com redirects users to Go.com, the landing page for Disney content (operated by the Walt Disney Internet Group).

Another example of how much brand protection means for a solid brand.
