    Hello πŸ‘‹

    Today I registered a domain and that is related to a company's future project. That company invested billions in that future project.I registered the Domain which is. .. companyname_projectname.com . The company may take the domain or maybe not.

    I checked the trademarks the company is not holding the trademark for the project name.

    What should I do now ?
    Keep/hold the domain
    Delete the domain
    Handover the domain for free to the company.

    Or Am I getting a lawsuit. ? Ha ha.

    Dear experienced members, Guide me.

    They would still own the rights to their own business name.

    Depending on the extension and how unique their business and project name is, you may have an issue.

    Probably best to speak with a lawyer.

  3. Delete the name. If you registered a company name, it can only lead to trouble
     
  4. Probably. ...kids :xf.rolleyes:

  7. I wouldn't bother offering it, you're asking for trouble. No need to contact a lawyer, just delete it and get on with your life.

    If the domain isn't that much value wise, drop it to save the hassle

    If the domain is a lot value wise, hire a lawyer ...then probably drop it anyway, to save the hassle
     
  9. If its worth anything then it will probably be generic.

    companyname_projectname.com

    Just drop it and keep yourself away from trademarks - in any form.
     
  11. Example
    Company name Namepros
    Project a new token
    So you own NameprosToken.com
    Best thing you can do is email the company asking 10k and let us know how it turns out

    So this company has Invested Billions into this particular project and you felt it was a good idea to take their Company name (undoubtedly a Trademark already) and tag on this well known investment strategy term for this particular company and then play dumb.

    Why don't you take up swimming with Alligators/sharks or even Bullring fighting . These animals will equally recognize your naivety and allow you to play around in their territories and hunting grounds without the slightest attention.

    A perfect example of how to get nowhere in the domain world, Apart from badly bitten
