    I have recently acquired LLLL.com and I found that all other extensions
    Net, org, info, biz,us owned by big company and all registered more than ten years ago

    I searched the company . they own over 6000 names and of course my name is not main domain but as they own all other extensions my name might be of interest to them and I think they forget to renew it by mistake.

    The company is one of top ten in fortune 500 for the list of biggest american corporations.

    My question is it worthy to contact them to sell the name and any possible legal problems I might have with them.

    The company industry is healthcare services

    Thanks in advance for any input or advice

    If you want to give it to them, then yes contact them. But I'm assuming you want to sell it and I would say good luck because as someone who has worked on the corporate side, we'd rather have legal handle it than send a check.

    your best option is to renew the name for max period ( 10 yearss )
    and wait


    put no other content on page then a contact form

    you can't infringe a t rade mark with no content


    domains are used for a lot of reasons
    www
    is only one of them

    maybe you need some files storage and use it only for ftp?
    or email?

    You should check the trademark stuff. I own a LLLL.com stock symbol of a company with 5,000+ employees. I was only offered for a $2,500 for the domain( I contacted them) whereas other domainers have offered me $4,500 for the same domain. It receives lots of traffic from them.

    just wait for 10 years
    renew it and forget it
    and ask for double every year

    If you work for a company, even if you're the CEO, you have an easier time explaining to the board that you're sending legal than justifying why you have to send a $500k check. In addition as a trademark holder, you've got to actively enforce your trademark. You can probably see by now why contacting them might not be the best case. You might luck out but I wouldn't count on it.
