    It seems that Jonathan Ive's love of privacy has worked against him.

    He has lost his claim with the World Intellectual Property Organisation for the jonathan-ive.com, jonathanive.com, jony-ive.com and jonyive.com domain names because his name is not a trade mark and because he shuns publicity.

    Ouch. His intellectual property lawyer should have realized that.
