Owner of iTunes.co.uk Ordered To Give It Up


Benjamin Cohen says that he's not a cyber squatter.

The owner of the itunes.co.uk domain is considering an appeal to Britain's High Court after Nominet, the UK Internet registry, ordered him to give up the address to Apple.

He also says that he registered the iTunes.co.uk domain before Apple applied for a trademark in the UK, as well as three years before the U.S. launch of the iTunes Music Store and four years before the UK iTunes Music Store.

Nominet ruled that Mr. Cohen had made an "abusive registration," and that he "is using the domain name in a way which has confused people or businesses into believing that the domain name is registered to, operated or authorized by, or otherwise connected with the complainant."

The domain itunes.co.uk currently redirects visitors to a page Mr. Cohen's company owns advertising Napster ; Mr. Cohen presumably gets a small commission for everyone who signs up through the page.

Appealing Nominet's decision can be an expensive process, Mr. Cohen says, but he is encouraged by the recent High Court ruling that allowed the owner of Phone4U.co.uk to keep the domain after Nominet had ordered the owner to give it up to retailer Phones4U.co.uk.
