This is becoming a frequent and ugly issue. You can buy a perfectly fine domain having potential non-TM issues, but if the parking results include entries within the class of goods and services covered by someone's TM, even a TM of which you've never heard, you can end up in a difficult position.
The actual problem can originate with PPC advertisers buying their competitor's trademarks as keywords, but when the results end up on your parking page, it can be hard to explain. For example, UDRP panelists in general do not understand how this stuff works, and there are few cases in which they have understood that the domain registrant is not directly responsible for the PPC results.
An early case along this line is flamingo.com, and a more recent one is beam.com.
Cases where the panelists "got it" are eaa.com and elephant.com...
John, I guess you are fairly familiar with the elephant.com case...lol. Thank you for the insight and good job!.
What about registrars that "park" your domain and they reap any profits from clicks (godaddy default) as an example?..
My brother had a law suit with a french firm over the domain 'jules.com' He won in the end, but I was personally shocked about it...
I am not so sure but I assume that Godaddy would be more in trouble profiting from that you the registered owner. Has there been any cases like this?..
What about them? Unless that domain name's registered under the registrar's.
Name, then what can the complaining party get from them even if they sue.
Them in Court?.
As Dr. Berryhill said, read the fine prints. It's amazing how such a simple thing.
To do is ignored a lot of the time...
