Taylor Swift purchases risque domain names to prevent porn links

Taylor Swift has reportedly attempted to prevent porn producers from using her fame to draw visitors to their sites by snapping up two domains featuring her name.

The Shake It Off hitmaker has purchased the rights to TaylorSwift.porn and TaylorSwift.adult to stop others from taking advantage of her popularity once the alternative domain names become available to the general public this June (15), according to CNN.com.


Public figures and companies have been given advance access to register the new .porn, .adult and .sucks sites, which cost up to $2,500 each.


Swift has made a habit of keeping an eye on domain names which reference her - last month (Feb15), her representatives allegedly threatened to sue Ronnie Cremer, the guy who taught her to play guitar, over his itaughttaylorswift.com website.
