    A simple but yet effective trick:
    Redirect the website to a landing page, which states that the domain is for sale and include a contact form. Furthermore list it for example on sites like Afternic/GoDaddy with a possibility to place bids. Then sit back, drink your coffee and wait ☕️

    Are you familiar with the term? The company name is Zoom.com. do they have trademark rights to any word with Zoom?

    “Zoom” is trademarked, and “zoombombing” is not a flattering portrayal of Zoom. It’s worth $0

    ...says the guy who still hasn't finished counting all the tall cash he made from those "Tide Pod Challenge" domain names that people spent millions to buy.

    How on earth is this domain nice to you? Since the virus started, I have done many meetings on Zoom and I like the platform. I dont believe it worths what you are hoping it to worth.

    If the Zoom in ZoomBomb.com relates to the company with the trademark "Zoom", then your domain is infringing on their trademark. It's really that simple, you cannot use a domain based on someone else's intellectual property for profit .. it's not legal and it is not moral .. and thus effectively makes all such domains not just worthless ($0), but also potentially a legal liability in certain circumstances.

    No, that's not the point. There can be lots of domain names with "zoom" in them that have nothing to do with this well-known conferencing service known as "zoom".

    "Apple" is a well-known trademark for computers and other services. The word "apple" can be used for lots of things. If someone is selling fruit juice and has AppleCider.com, and that domain name goes to a site advertising apple cider, then nobody is going to think that the domain name was registered for any reason having to do with the computer company.

    But, if someone registers AppleMalware.com then, sure, it's pretty freaking obvious that the domain name registration is motivated by the Apple trademark for computers and software. It's also pretty obvious that the domain name may be of concern to Apple because it refers to a specific type of abuse targeted toward their products.

    It's not a question of simply "Does the trademark appear in the domain name?"

    People aren't stupid. It doesn't take a special genius to figure out that BobsAppleOrchard.com, registered to some guy named Bob who has a farm in New York state, is a very different story from, say, ApplePasswordCracks.com registered to someone who is looking to sell a domain name.
