“According to registration records, RIM purchased BlackPad.com just days ago.”
The domain is being administered by one of those trademark protection companies, corporatedomains.com
“”The domain name has existed for several years now. It has been squatted by a couple of individuals since January 2002”
“Considering that there are no trademarks for BlackPad, it seems unlikely that RIM paid a huge amount of money for the domain name.””
I see if a domainer owns the domain its been squatted on even if the product doesn’t even exist.
However if a corporation buys the domain, well the shares of the maker of Blackberry, Research In Motion were up over 4% on the news today.
Moreover the mainstream blog got it wrong. Since there is no trademark the owner of the domain probably got paid.
Or at least I hope so.
