Hello! I own .com domain that was registered in 1999, and I bought it in 2016 for 1500$. But I do not use till now. Today I got a treat from Germany that they have a trademark in Germany (registered in 2019, but the website is under development, job board related) and they would like to sue me. What is possible to do in such a situation? They also mentioned patent, do I violate any patents by owning the domain name? From the trademark owner in Germany: " Hmm, ok, i wanted to buy it. Too bad because your name infringe on our patent rights with the domain. We own the - ***- brand. But you use the name without our permission. I want to avoid unnecessary litigation but as I said $1500 is over the top. My offer with $500 is still available. " --------------------------------- Also: This domain stays parked. The previous owner from Israel built a recruitment website there in 2010-2014, it was saved in archive-org. In 2016 he listed it in GoDaddy auction, I bought it. Can I use this domain in future for markets other than Germany? Will probably register a TM in the US and Canada. Can archive-org be used for the proof that a domain was registered before in a good faith?
