    I was doing some research into a potential domain and found a generic word that returned a rather "iffy" trademark result in my cursory search. For sake of example, let's say the word is "bike" (not the actual word I'm searching).

    Combine that with parts to get something like bikeparts.shop

    The one result found for the word "bike" is really odd, and no results are returned for the supposed company that has the mark.

    With such a generic word and so many businesses using it as part of their name (John's Bikes, Mike's Bikes, Main Street Bikes, etc), what are your thoughts?

    Again, bike isn't the exact word I'm searching, but just as generic.
