Apple gains control of itunes.com.mx

Given the large number of domain extensions out there, it’s nearly impossible for companies to register a domain on each one for all their products. This explains why Apple recently filed a dispute over the name itunes.com.mx, which had been registered several years earlier by a cybersquatter.

Naturally, Apple won the domain because of its trademark on the term “iTunes.” With the introduction of gTLDs next year, expect to see more causes like this one. There are simply too many extensions for one company to keep track of, and when new ones begin to appear on a regular basis, it will be even harder for trademark holders to enforce their rights.
