Don't be ignorant on subject like I was. You can avoid any potential problems by educating yourself and thereby preventing samething from happening to you.
Don't make same mistake that I did!
Do your research before you buy a domain name and make sure there is NO trademark associated with that name.
There are trademark search engines where you can type in a word or a phrase and it will tell you if it is a trademark.
You can visit United States Patent And Trademark Office (USPTO) website to do a trademark search:
Now, in my case I chose not to fight trademark dispute and gave up my domain name voluntarily. I felt it just wasn't worth time, money and headaches to launch a fight over this.
If this should ever happen to you, you do have rights and there are proper channels to go through to settle dispute. Contact a lawyer who specializes in this field.
And don't even think for one minute that this sort of thing can't happen to you. Trust me. If you have a trademark in your domain name it is only a matter of time before you get that letter in mail like I did.
There are numerous cases all over internet concerning disputes over trademark and domain names.
Don't you be one of them...
