Missouri colleges take prophylactic action

Ba-doom Pshh. There's a domain rush to purchase .xxx sites before pornography takes them over.  From stl.today.com.

Washington U., Mizzou aim to protect names from porn sites
The world is getting closer to the launching of a new Internet address system for pornography providers, and there are some eye-opening names being registered. Among them: washu.xxx and mizzou.xxx.

Don't, however, expect to find naked co-eds at either of these sites.
In what amounts to a defensive maneuver, schools across the nation are snapping up the .xxx domain names that match their federally registered trademarks. It's simply a matter of trying to keep them out of the wrong hands.
"We don't want someone coming across our trademark on a porn site. God only knows what they'd come up with," said Terry Robb, director of information technology at the University of Missouri-Columbia, which also has registered missouri.xxx and missouritigers.xxx.
