League of Legends Wins Domain Name Battle Against Porn Site

Posted by | August 22, 2012

The insanely popular battle arena game League of Legends has been fighting a battle in the world wide web. The opponent in this match was LeagueofLegends.co, note the missing “m” on the end of that URL. Gamers who mistyped the address for LeagueofLegends.com would end up on the .co site, which just happened to be full of porn. Fortunately, League of Legends was successful in their fight, and now controls the .co version of their domain as well. Their next target? LeagueofLegendsPorn.com. Rule 34 is a harsh mistress. Fusible has the story.

    Shady sites have been using typo domains since the Web was born, but it’s rare in gaming as most games don’t have the kind of audience to make it worthwhile. League of Legends is an exception, being one of the most popular websites in the world. With that kind of exposure, it’s no wonder scam artists are taking advantage.
