    iPad domains

    For sale: A million-dollar iPad address


    A search on eBay last Sunday for domain names with "iPad" in them turned up more than 300 listings, some with asking prices as high as $21 million. (See here.)
    Tyler says he's had "a lot of interest," more than a dozen offers — "but nothing in the price range I would like to get" — and a few warnings that he might face trademark problems. (A lawyer has advised him that because he registered the names a year ago, he should be in the clear.)
    iPadDotCom.COM for $4,444,000.00 must be a typo.

    Interesting to see how this will work out with possible trademarks infringements.

    There are a bunch of these high-priced domains on eBay right now.

    It amazes me that anyone would buy a domain with a trademarked name that Apple will very likely take away from them.

    It's probably not a typo. There are quite a few idiots on eBay trying to sell domains for extraordinarily high prices, even when the domains are hardly worth a registration fee. They must really think that "there is a sucker born every minute."

    I wouldn't buy any iPad domain names unless you want trademark lawsuits.

    Ha! There was a bit on BBC News the other day about Apple considering the word "Pad" itself to be theirs let alone iPad in response to a developer who had the word "pad" in his iPhone app name (journalpad I think is what the app was).
    Cheers,
    James

    Let's see him sue Kotex for making Maxi Pads.

    Steve Jobs is one of the few major execs who seems more fascist than Eric Schmidt.
