Here come the defensive domain name registrations…
This week I wrote about how Volkswagen registered a number of domain names related to its diesel emissions scandal. The domains, such as VWdieselinfo.com, were likely registered to disseminate information about recalls.
While those domain names weren’t defensive, the company is now going on the defensive with a handful of domain name registrations.
Here are some domain names the company registered yesterday:
VWDieselreall.com (a typo of recall?)
VWTDIblows.com (TDI is the name of its diesel system)
The domain names are quite accurate — VW diesels certainly blow a lot of emissions.
