    Two-word domain. They registered their name in 2016. They filed a trademark on the first word for a specific use in 2016. My domain Whois history goes back to 2007. How would you respond?

    Are you saying they contacted you about your domain?

    want your name for free (UDRP?) or want to buy your name?
    If you don't use the name for bad faith, take it easy and may earn big money! Congrats :)

    Are they accusing you of something?
    Or did they offer to buy?
    Not enough info here...

    I think what @garptrader is saying is they make an inquiry for the domain. The motivation being to trap him into selling the domain with bad faith. But they won't win a UDRP, if he's owned the domain since 2007. Or any date prior to their first use under their trademark.

    You could just ask them to make an offer, and you will consider it.

    It would be hard to believe they didn't know your version was for sale or even try to contact you at or before the .co
