    Company forwards domain name after recovering it from cybersquatter.

    Apple has started forwarding iPhone4s.com — a domain name it recovered from a cybersquatter that showed porn — to the iPhone page on Apple.com.

    The domain name started forwarding to Apple’s web site yesterday.

    Earlier this month Apple filed a complaint with World Intellectual Property Forum to get the domain name and six others, all of which forwarded to mobile porn sites. Just before Thanksgiving Apple convinced the owner of the domain names to hand them over. The other domains recovered are:

    iphonecamforce.com
    iphonecam4s.com
    iphoneporn4s.com
    iphonesex4s.com
    iphonexxxforce.com
    porn4iphones.com

    But iPhone4s.com continued to forward to a porn site even after the domain was transferred, until yesterday.

    Porn fans may be disappointed to find out that the other six domain names no longer resolve to web sites.
