    Poll: Are You Satisfied With Your Sales?

    Should I Register a Trademark?

    If you are planning on keeping a domain name long term with no interest in selling, should you register a trademark for the domain name? That is the question that is being asked here.

    To add a little more context, the investor is going to use the domain in conjunction with development, which may make a trademark more desirable. However, as other domainers have pointed out, it may affect the ability to sell the domain in future. What would you do?
