Late last week, Apple filed a complaint with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) seeking to gain control of the domain. While Apple opted to simply refer to the third-generation iPad as "the new iPad", it seemed likely that the company was still interested in controlling as a potentially popular destination for those attempting to find out more about the device.

As noted by Fusible, Apple appears to have already taken control of the domain, with the Whois information having been updated to list Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton, the law firm commonly used by Apple in its patent and trademark proceedings. Visitors to the site are, however, still routed through a set of advertising and affiliate links.

The case is still listed as active by WIPO, but it certainly appears that Apple has struck an agreement with the domain's previous owners that will enable the case to be terminated.
