    Hello guys ,

    I bought googlehomespeaker.com recently and wanted to list it on Sedo but it doesnt let me do . Sedo's message is below and i wanted to know what you guys think about it . googlehome speaker is a product name and i dont think that it may conflict with the rights of the Google ... or may it ?

    '' googlehomespeaker.com: We're sorry, but Sedo cannot allow you to directly add this domain to your account due to a potential conflict with the rights of a third party. ''

    I know the term .. what i wonder is ;
    I am going to create a website about the product and going to use this domain for the website . I am not going to sell the product but its going to be more a informative website since i am a fan of the product . Is that against the law ?
    BTW : I am going to have a note on my website which is going to point that i am not affilate with the Google .

    If you are doing that why are you listing it on Sedo?

    don't used trademark names in domain names. pretty simple.
    He is doing that because it won't sell. So he will develop it, and not make any money instead.
    Grace delete, spend your time on something that is not using another company name to your advantage

    Then why do you want to list the domain on Sedo, a platform for domain sales ? These two statements don't jive.

    Never ever register a trademark domain again.

    If possible, try to get a refund by simply contacting the support from your hoster.

    If not, just delete it.

    There will be information about the product and reviews . Name of the product is googlehome .. why would that be against the law ?

    Bro thank you for the help and no we are getting somewhere .
    You taught me that i can sell a domain but only transfer to current registrar for 60 days .
    and I am telling you that listing domains on websites like the SEDO can help your website rank better on google searches at the very begginning .

    Sedo doesnt accept it anyways and btw google didnt care as much as you did . I am still reading the rules . I guess i am going to contact the legal department of the Google to make sure if i can use the domain . http://www.google.com/permissions/trademark/rules.html

    g-d have a number of names containing the word google in them, key in the word google on their site and see what pops up.

    This is the product : https://madeby.google.com/home/
    Google is the only seller of the product yet and my website isnt going to do more than promoting their own product for free . Why would they get annoyeded with that ?
    Google Home is the name of the product and its a speaker so i wasnt trying to use the name of the compnay but it is what they named their product Google Home Speaker

    Because you could potentially get revenue from your site because it uses their name. No matter if you've have creative, original content. It's not a generic term, and instantly associated with the company, Google.

    If you had, for example, HomeStereoReviews.com or similar, you could make sections tailored to your reviews of their stereos, and would it be fine.

    And that's the problem you asked about, hchaglar, which Google (sometimes) addresses via the UDRP or some trademark laws. You can find some of the UDRP and trademark cases Google pursued if you search online enough.
