Here is what is likely to happen if the site gets Apple's attention:
Apple Seizes 16 Domain Names From A Guy In One Fell Swoop
My personal opinion is that anyone who buys a domain name that contains a trademarked name is a fool. I know that there are a lot of people on eBay trying to sell such domain names for premium prices, but they are just fishing for suckers.
Many companies are starting to aggressively protecting their trademarks.
A while ago I received a nasty letter from Sony's attorneys because on of my sites used their images and trademark name on a few pages (not in the domain). They also contacted my hosting company and demanded that my site be taken down. They backed off when I pointed out that the site was an Amazon affiliate marketing site and Amazon granted me the rights to use Amazon's images and Sony's brand name in order to sell their products. This just shows how far some companies will go to try to make life miserable for someone using their intellectual property.
There are law firms that have been set up who specialize in protecting intellectual property rights. They have developed spiders that scan the web looking for domains that infringe on their clients' trademarks.
