So, I hand reg a domain name about three or four years ago. Can't remember right now, but It was just a random type in, a playoff of whisky. I typed in Whesskey and seen that the .com was available so I purchased it. A few months ago as I was deleting some of my crap names I decided to look-up Whesskey to see if there was an opportunity for me to sell it. I found a whisky company in Germany who was using the .de ext. and decided to give it a shot. Yes, I did a trademark search beforehand and came up clear. Maybe I missed something but I received an e-mail today after three months since contacting them. I received it in German, had to translate. My question is isn't trademarks only good in the country registered but not others which I thought made it okay to reg just as long as the trademark doesn't extend to your country? Hope I asked clearly. I'm thinking I should develop it just to piss them off. This is their response... Hello Mr. Hines, we are not interested in buying this domain address. Note that the name Whesskey® is trademarked. Any unauthorized use may require legal action.
