League of Legends Wins Fight Against Porn Site

Apparently when GoDaddy was hawking .co domain registrations with Danica Patrick and bodypaint, some Colombian outfit snapped up LeagueOfLegends.co and redirected gamers who forgot to type that last "M" to a porn site. Considering the overall popularity of LeagueOfLegends.com, this was a shrewd bit of cybersquatting.

Well, now their cynical pornmongering has come to an end. Riot Games, the League of Legends maker, sued for ownership of the domain, claiming trademark infringement. The two sides appear to have settled because Riot now controls the domain, without the matter ending up before the World Intellectual Property Organization.

One down, one to go. Someone registered LeagueOfLegendsPorn.com, which gets points for truth in advertising, but probably will end up in Riot's hands before too long, too.
