Apple tangles with owner of itunes.co.uk

U.K.-based Internet entrepreneur Benjamin Cohen says that he got an unexpected shock last month after he checked his voicemail and heard a lawyer representing Apple Computer Inc. telling him to hand over his Web site domain, itunes.co.uk. Apple alleges that Cohen's CyberBritain Holdings Ltd is a "cybersquatter" just sitting on the domain hoping for a big settlement; Cohen denies the allegation.

Uhuh... an "unexpected shock" my ass.

While I agree with you that it's hardly unexpected, you have to remember that the domain was registered before iTunes was launched, and that Cohen claims that what Apple have offered him so far does not cover his legal fees and will leave him out of pocket.
