I had to keep the title short to catch attention. Here's the deal I have thee opportunity right now to register a domain that is one of those new fancy extensions. As soon as I tried to register it. The registrar took a while after I hit GO TO CART. then I'm show this long letter explaining that the domain I was about to register is associated with a trademark. This wash the first time I've experienced this. yea they give me two options. To remove it from my cart or accept. so of course I hit ACCEPT duh! The trademark is by a company like say for example like me use fake stuff here" CheaperDomain.com okay? it's a good example because I use Cheapdomain alot so yea. Imagine CheapDomain.com trademarked "Cheaper Domain"? Now imagine if I had the opportunity to Register Cheaper.Domain or even better Cheap.Domain? Well my registrar (Not Cheapdomains.com) tells me that it's a registered trademark. when I hit ACCEPT it shows an error message. Are these people just preventing me from registering it so they can register it themselves and make a killing selling it to CheaperDomain.com? also I'm about to give them a call right now to see if maybe their system is acting up and preventing me from registering it. but should I even bother? is register such a domain a good idea to make money and selling it to either thee trademark owner. I think I already know you will all say that doing that is just asking for trouble. so of course I wouldn't do that. but thee other idea would be to just SIT ON IT let them know I have it or let them find out on their own whatever. and let them come to me? problem is I can't do anything related to the topic of this domain because that would be trademark infringement? I do know is Trademark means nothing unless the offender is using the domain to sell or promote the Same Goods and services as the trademark owner. so let's hear it folks! Newbie here willing to learn thanks!
