I wanted to come back to this. Of course I'm not saying that words like You,Cheap,Tube,Street are not fair game. But as it stands all you need is some slick buyer who just wants your domain on the premise that you approached them because they own YouTube.com to see YouTV.com or YouParty.com. I've seen people send me emails saying "we emailed you because you have the same keyword as my domain and was wondering if you would like to acquire my domain with similar keywords." My real question which I did not ask is... What's stopping someone whom you've reached out to from hiring a hungry TM lawyer to threaten you? There is no cost to them is there? The lawyer will just pass on the cost to the defendant. The threats always end with we can come after you from anywhere between $5,000-$100,000. When faced with a threat like that even if the domainer feels they are right they have no choice and now the buyer has a brand new domain for the price of a threat. Again I'm not talking about a domainer who obviously made the mistake of registering the web address of YouTubes.com and then had the brass nuts to try to sell it to YouTube.com So is it now totally out of the options for domainers to contact potential buyers who have similar keywords I their domains. How can domainers operate a business when they can't approach potential buyers with similar keywords. Side note I think I just came up with a great idea to stop spammers who scrape the who's database. Tell the spammer to give the domain owners info. Then get a TM lawyer and send a cybersquatter complaint and get the domains handed over to you for free. That will stop all those spammers from harassing us all with their garbage domains. I don't even think a lawyer is necessary. All you need to say is "we are confident that we will win because you are trying to sell a domain similar to ours. Containing our unregistered trademark." I know I'll get chewed out yet again. But I lik asking questions no one else asks. Because someone on NP might find it useful. If this thread helps even one domainer my job here is done. Edit: again I'm not talking about whether they would win a case or not but whether they can threaten you will a lawsuit if you don't handover the domains you just tried to sell them. Since defending such a case a domainer would need to hire a lawyer and none will work for free until the case is won. Anyone can sue anyone these days. It's a game chicken basically. See who flinches first.
