Better late than never, Apple gets domain name.

iPod NanoIt took about four years, but Apple has finally gotten its hands on the domain name.

Apple filed for arbitration with National Arbitration Forum to get the domain name. The owner of the domain name, Fusion Media Ltd., did not respond to the complaint and the arbitrator found in Apple’s favor.

Fusion Media registered the domain name in September 5, 2005, two days before Apple officially introduced the iPod Nano. Some product manager at Apple must have been asleep at the wheel. Apple famously paid through the nose to get the domain name, a name it could have secured prior to launch for much less. is the second domain name Apple has won through arbitration this month. Earlier this month it won the domain name, a country code domain name for Mexico.
