Riot Games Claims Domain from Porn Company

August 20, 2012 -

League of Legends maker Riot Games has managed to wrestle a web domain from a porn company. The URL, LeagueofLegends.co, relied heavily on user error to lure unsuspecting surfers to its dark and saucy doors where they were served up all kinds of nakedness... Riot Games won its legal dispute against the owner of LeagueofLegends.co, a domain that redirected users looking for the official site of multiplayer online battle arena League of Legends to a porn site.

LeagueofLegends.co was originally registered in July 2010 by Columbia's country-code domain dotCO, but Riot found out about the domain and filed complaint earlier this August with the World Intellectual Property Organization. The domain now lists the site as owned by Riot games and has marked as a matter that has been "terminated" on the World Intellectual Property Organization's website.

Riot has another domain complaint with World Intellectual Property Organization to remove LeagueofLegendsPorn.com. The current operators of that site call it the "future home of something cool." We call it the future home of something f#$@ed up...

Re: Riot Games Claims Domain from Porn Company

I can understand them going after LeagueOfLegends.co, since it is entirely possible to end up there via typo. But LeagueOfLegendsPorn.com? No, if you go there, you know exactly what you are looking for. It's not what you're going to get, but it's pretty hard to do by accident.
