    hi, I have a domain name with my actual name plus.com (myname.com)

    I noticed someone is using the exact same except there is another extension added (myname,com.au)

    Is this legally allowed?

    thanks for any knowledge/advice on this

    I wouldn't worry about it. As long as you have the .com you are fine. The other extensions are about to be null and void

    Yes, why not.

    I don't see any issue as there are hundreds and thousands of people with same name so anyone can register in any extension unless you've TM and someone is infringing on your TM.

    .com.au is an actual extension, you cannot just tag letters onto .com as you please,so yes, it's legal.

    Yes, Its a different extension and its legal. You can't take any legal action with the owner of that domain.
