After filing an intellectual property complaint in May to gain control of iPods.com, a decision has now reportedly been made in Apple’s favor, and the iPods.com domain will soon be transferred to Apple’s ownership.
Full details have not been disclosed, but Apple apparently employed a policy called the Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy in order to regain control of the domain.
The full policy follows:
All registrars must follow the the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (often referred to as the “UDRP”). Under the policy, most types of trademark-based domain-name disputes must be resolved by agreement, court action, or arbitration before a registrar will cancel, suspend, or transfer a domain name. Disputes alleged to arise from abusive registrations of domain names (for example, cybersquatting) may be addressed by expedited administrative proceedings that the holder of trademark rights initiates by filing a complaint with an approved dispute-resolution service provider.
