Sony registered the following domain names on Oct. 11:
No word on a release date, but Walter Isaacson's biography of Jobs--which had originally been titled "iSteve: the Book of Jobs"--is being rushed to publication by Simon & Schuster.
It's common for studios to register domain names and trademarks well before a movie begins production. Earlier this year, Disney trademarked the term "Seal Team 6"--the Navy Seals unit responsible for killing Osama Bin Laden--two days after an American operation took out the terrorist leader. (Disney later withdrew the trademark.)
As Fusible.com noted, two other Jobs film-related domains--SteveJobsfilm.com and SteveJobsmovie.com--were registered by Stoneport LLC, a Virginia-based Web design firm, in late August.
