Hey Everyone,

I got a quick question for y'all. I am very careful to avoid anything close to a Trademark when purchasing domains. However, I did find out that one of my Domains is the name of a Foreign Company. There is however no Trademark filed, and does not appear to be any businesses here in the states with a similar name. I'm trying to decide whether to keep or delete this domain. What are your thoughts on this?

I appreciate your feedback!

A party isn’t entitled to trademark rights simply because they took it as a business name. Thats the whole reason for trademarks. To firmly stake a claim.

When considering keeping or dropping is it generic, how many other parties might want it, keyword strength, etc.

If you do keep just leave it on make offer. Do not contact the company.

Can you pm me the name? I'll tell you what I think. Chances are I'd keep if no active trademark.
