    Is it legal to include a company's product name in your domain name?

    Specifically, I'm developing a guide for a video game and want to know if I can include the name of the game in my domain. The game's genre is "survival" so I registered the domain "survive[GameNameHere].com". Is that going to be a problem? If it is, how could I keep it as close as possible without infringing on anything? Like using an abbreviation or initialism.

    I state on the front page that it's an "unofficial guide" and on the about page state that the site is in no way affiliated with the game's developer. I do plan on using Google advertising.
