LOS ANGELES — The operator of hip-hop shock site WorldStarHipHop.com today filed a cybersquatting claim at WIPO seeking to take over an adult tube site.

The tube site, WorldStarPorn.net, uses similar graphic qualities of the mainstream hip-hop site, which was started in 2005 as a distributor of mix tapes and has soared in popularity in its first decade.

As years passed, WorldStarHipHop.com focused on videos of rappers engaging in fights with other rappers and public sexual acts. Many of those videos have gone viral.

WorldStarPorn.net's actual operators weren't named in the UDRP claim  because the site has masked its registration with its hosting company. 

WorldStarPorn.net's site offers a plethora of adult content of particular interest to those who seek out urban women and those with big booties.

The site says it associates itself with about 15 additional URLs that use "world star" in porn domain names, including WorldStarXXX.com.

WorldStarHipHop.com and its parent company LO 337 IP Holdings LLC have been victorious in eight other cybersquatting claims at WIPO, including those with the names WorldStarSouth.com, WorldStarDirtySouth and WorldStarMexico.com.

The company in each of the cases said it had a common law trademark for "world star" and a registered trademark for "world star hip hop."

It also operates WorldStarMatch.com, WorldStarCandy.com, WorldStarHoneys.com and WorldStarCandyLive.com — sites that offer pics of "honeys," "models and vixens" and more.

WorldStarHipHop.com, which also  has its own hip-hop clothing line and urban shop, is a Internet wonder, currently ranking No. 250 in the U.S., according to Alexa.

It likely will become even more well known in coming years. In August, Deadline reported  that Paramount Pictures was working on a movie based on the website.
