According to CNNMoney, Taylor Swift has been busy buying questionable website domains such as TaylorSwift.porn and TaylorSwift.adult. Does this reveal a turn in the career for this feminist pop-star?
The intent behind the purchase is much more likely the desire to protect her name and image. It effectively prevents the porn industry from posting x-rated content under a website associated with her name.
Starting June 1st, domain names such as .sucks and .porn will become available to the public for sale. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers have allowed public figures and companies to get a head start by allowing them to purchase certain domains ahead of the public release. Microsoft has reportedly also purchased Office.porn and Office.adult for the same reasons.
I wonder what other celebrities will follow suit, or otherwise allow trolls to tarnish their names with porn related websites?
