Apple doesn’t own iPad.com, apple.co.uk or many other domains that contain its name or the names of its products, but it is now the proud owner of applecom.com and appleprinters.com — two domains that were the subject of a complaint Apple made to the World Intellectual Property Organization about a month ago.

If you now visit those URLs, they automatically redirect to Apple’s main site.

The site Domain Tools notes that Apple picked up both applecom.com and appleprinters.com from Mark Monitor, the domain management and brand protection firm that provides services also to Facebook and Google, among others. Apple Inc. now owns “about 1,071 domains,” according to Whois records.
