GoDaddy customer reviews : Advise I order GoDaddy?? Buying domains with copyrighted names

What would happen if I bought for example any of these sites: www.nintendo.eu www.playstation.eu www.google.eu.

Is there a chance I could get sued by these companies since I'm pretty sure these names are trademarked? But then again it's a domain name and anyone should have the right to buy a domain name as long as it's not taken... could someone shed some light on this for me please?.

P.S. Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm honestly not sure.....

It's a terrible idea for you to purchase these names...

Comment #1

I am not sure if you would be sued. But they would send you a nasty letter and take the domains off you...

Comment #2

Go to the search bar and use keywords "trademark" and "TM" and spend several days reading why not please...

Comment #3

Google got sued for trademark infringement in France and was eventually ruled.

Against. I hope that tells you something...

O.k, I feel really stupid now... I got all caught up in the damn landrush that I went and tried to get just such names being that I'm not a domainer and thought I would give it a try.

I pre-registered some at GD, now what? I cannot cancel them and what if I get them?.

Thanks...

*feeling stupid*..

Contact the registrar maybe they will be kind to sort this out for you..

Comment #6

The sad thing is that if I contact them to cancel them I won't get a refund... most of them will fail to register I'm sure and even if a couple do then I doubt it will be a big deal as long as I cancel them and just bit the bullet on having lost the price to register them...

I'm so stupid to not have thought this through, not being a domainer I was checking some names for availability and when I saw them availible I thought WOW, I better try and get them. Not thinking about TMs at all... stupid stupid stupid I know!.

Oh well, what can I say, I'm Dutch..
