Hands Off My PORN.COM!

PORN.COM logoIt is now confirmed that Porn.com, one of the largest and top adult entertainment websites in the world, was recently “hijacked” by an unknown third party. The high-valued adult domain was originally purchased in 2007 for $9.5million making it the 3rd most expensive domain of all time and this event one of the largest attempts of domain theft to date.

Since learning of the hijacking, Porn.com’s attorneys Corey D. Silverstein, and Paul Keating, with the assistance of Larry Walters have worked tirelessly to recover this highly valued adult domain and return it to its rightful owner. The website is presently back in the hands of its rightful owners and back at the domain registrar, Moniker.

The domain was recovered through the diligent efforts of Porn.com’s legal team, in cooperation with the registrars and Verisign. At no time did the website operators consider payment of any ransom or settlement fee to retrieve its rightful property.

Despite the hijacker’s malicious attempt to steal Porn.com, at no time was day‐to‐day business affected and consumer experience was not impacted in the slightest.

A detailed investigation is being conducted into how this event occurred and intend to hold all responsible parties accountable for their actions.

During this unfortunate event, all available legal tools were utilized including but not limited to Mr. Keating initiating UDRP proceedings through the World Intellectual Property Organization (“WIPO”). Additionally, Porn.com was at all times poised to take aggressive legal action in the event that the registrar did not act quickly to remedy this blatant act of domain theft.

The recovery team thanks the countless individuals that offered assistance and did assist during this difficult event.

All further media inquiries should be made by email and directed to Corey D. Silverstein ([email protected]), however, due to the continued investigation regarding this matter, no further information shall be provided at this time.
