'WOMADelaide' a porn site no more

Womadelaide postcardA pornographic website exploiting the name of the WOMADelaide world music festival in Adelaide, Australia, has been removed reports The Advertiser. The website for womadelaide.com previously sold pornographic DVDs but now redirects surfers to the festival website womadelaide.com.au.
The dispute appears to have been resolved amicably with lawyers for the music festival avoiding dispute resolution proceedings.
Arts Projects Australia director Ian Scobie said they found out about the problem from a couple of people who “stumbled across” the offending website.
“It came as a complete surprise that it happened,” he told The Advertiser. “Then discovering that you are kind of held hostage because someone is masquerading as your organisation. It was a very graphic kind of site and it had quite a lot of explicit material that people could access.”
