Microsoft has taken the time to register SkypeSexFinder.com this month.
The software giant registered the domain on Friday December 16. Microsoft typically registers domains to protect their trademarks or against future products. Fusible spotted the domain name registration and notes that it currently forwards to Microsoft’s Bing search engine. It’s not clear why the company has registered SkypeSexFinder.com. If you’re expecting Microsoft to release an adult sex finder service using its recently acquired Skype service in time for New Years Eve then you might be bitterly disappointed.
Microsoft previously won a battle for a set of Kinect domains earlier this year. The software maker also registered the bi.ng domain name, microsoft-sony.com domain and kinecthalo.com. All three domain names appear to be related to trademark protection and what the company describes as defensive domain holds.
