Hi!.

Anybody know ebayenforcement.com ? Is it really from eBay ? I received an email from and they said maybe one of my domain contain their trade mark. I registered that domain in the last year, never thought somebody else will be interested in that domain, and I never used the name for anything.

I don't know what I should do now.

Thanks for any help...

Do you have a domain name that uses the word ebay or infringes on their trademark.

I looked up ebayenforcement.com.

That name exists and it's apparently registered to eBay Inc. and it forwards here.

It is also run by markmonitor.com which tracks trademark violations.

I haven't run into TM issues because I don't register domains with TMs in them (this is something you should do because you could be facing a situation like you are describing now).

Assuming that the email is really from them then you may have to give it up. But it depends on the name and whether you have like eBay or some other eBay type TM violation. I can't really tell without seeing the name (DO NOT POST IT HERE).

Hopefully more experienced domainers here can help you further because I haven't gone through this type of problem before.

Tread extremely carefully here. eBay are very protective over their mark. It is more surprising that they have taken so long to contact you they are usually really quick and monitor registrations...

Comment #2

Anything with ebay in thhe domain you are violating TM..

Comment #3

I doubt the owners of ChesapeakeBay.com would agree with you...

Comment #4

Hard to give an opinion without knowing the name.

When you say you never used the name for anything, does that include parking ?

Comment #5

No parking either. Actually my domain is a .net, the .com was hold by another guy, not eBay either...

Comment #6

Well without giving away the name does it contain eBay in it and violate the trademark.eg. eBayauctions.net ebaydeals.net etc.?.

Does it obviously violate their trademark or is it like jberryhill suggested something like WelcomeBay.net , etc.?.
