Cohen sues Apple over itunes.co.uk

Benjamin Cohen, a 22 year old British man, is suing Apple over itunes.co.uk, an internet domain which he registered in 2000. Last month the UK domain name Registry Nominet turned over the domain name to Apple.

Cohen says that Nominet is biased against small businesses while Nominet states that Cohen was abusing his registration.
"The domain name, in the hands of the respondent [Mr Cohen], is an abusive registration on the grounds of its use in a manner taking unfair advantage of, and being unfairly detrimental to, the rights of the complainant [Apple]."

Mr Cohen claims not to have heard of Apple's iTunes music download service until after it was launched last year.
