    Of course, but as I said above, it's not 100% they would be successful, and sometimes it would be lightyears cheaper for them to just by the domain instead of filing a UDRP Complaints or a Lawsuit. UDRP cases are costly. With these companies targeting youth and people who enjoy gaming, I doubt they would want to discourage fans from doing what fans do best.

    As I said, it would be the end of the human race.

    I can't believe in 2019, we still have these type of threads. Do you really think a UDRP is costly to..........Google?

    You keep believing that O_o, if you are blatanly infringing, you will lose the name to the TM holder. There might be the exception to the rule cases, but thats not the norm. $10k, 100k or 500k is nothing to big companies defending their brand

    Believe it, or not, an organization, even as massive as Google, look at the cost of certain things. They do have budgets too. So to answer your question, Yes! They also look at other things too (i.e. negative publicity, etc) There's a lot that goes into this sort of stuff. It's not just cut-and-dry. Negative publicity could cost a company millions and billions. Word get out of bad abusive policy and practices, investors will pull out, stock could plummet... all over something seemingly simple.

    Yes thats right, but they certainly wont be worry about a few bucks to defend their brand that they spent billions building. Cmon, this is pretty obvious, put it in the legal section and see what experts like jberryhill think

    Of course, but as I said, and I'll say again, every situation is very unique.

    Post it in the legal section or ask some of the experts on domain TM laws. I am referring to blatant TM infringements here, not grey areas, but when bad faith is obvious. I hope people get caught if they are infringing too, I would certainly not like it if people/companies benefited off my TM.

    Examples were given of games, consoles, domains sold. I think this is OK.
    I get you, but in general, companies analyse a multitude of things before taking such an action. Are they really going to go after the 13 year old fanboy with his club affiliates enjoying a game on a friday night and posting their scores on his club website using their logo? Will they really go after a vender selling Stadia products or services? Will they really go after a gaming engineer using the domain with 'stadia' as his portfolio? This isn't 1997-1999 when we had the huge Internet rush. Sure patent trolls still exist and realisally, anyone could be sued for anything, with nonsense complaints but I wouldn't dwell on it.

    We will agree to disagree on this one. :xf.wink: You are right, they wont go after a 13 year old fan boy, but it doesn't make what hes doing right, he is still infringing, just on a smaller scale, mainly because he doesnt know any better.

    From the brief research I did, Stadia is widely used, listed in very old dictionaries, and would be tough for a UDRP complaint or lawsuit. It's not a contemporary made up word (i.e. Google, etc).

    "Since the game is hosted on Google's servers, only the visual feedback from the game is streamed to the player's computer, via the company's Chrome browser."

    People play game in their browser
    Service is called Stadia
    No one needs Stadia domain?

    This is an absolutely invaluable constructive conversation we had. I think this was important for all of us domainers. I do thank you for sharing your thoughts. You did have very compelling points and I do thank you for challenging what I shared. This is all very interesting and it's really good to learn about.

    Yeah it is, so are a lot of common words like Apple, Orange, Parrot, Caterpillar etc

    A lot of people think common nouns etc cannot be TM's which is not the case.

    I bet you're going to see a fury of trademarks being listed in the coming months. This is going to be huge.
