Movie studio buys domain Injustice.com — for a new online game or movie?
Movie studio Warner Bros. has purchased the domain name Injustice.com for $7,500 through Afternic.
This is one of those domains with many uses, but that the owner must have known could end up being the title of a movie or game. It’s kind of like Invasion.com, which is in Sedo’s Great Domains auction this week. However, Injustice.com has a lot more commercial uses than Invasion.com.
It doesn’t appear that Warner Bros. has any announced movies named Injustice. There’s a documentary about class action lawsuits by this name that’s gaining steam, though. Perhaps the movie studio has bought the distribution rights.
There’s one more clue in the whois record that suggests and entirely different use. The DNS records for the domain have been set to ns1.dns.turbine.com. Turbine.com is owned by Turbine Games, a Warner Bros. company that hosts Lord of the Rings Online, Dungeons and Dragons Online, and Asheron’s Call.
I’ll let any movie buffs or online gamers chime in here if they know more.
[Update: Looks the game theory is right. See comments below.]
