Is this a TM?.

If it does - what if I use FF? it's also a TM?..

With a name like firefox it really does depend on usage. If you setup a site (for example) with the domain "ilovefirefox.com" promoting the advantages and encouraging others to download the application - Mozilla aren't going to complain about that.

Technically it is a trademark infringement but like I say, it depends on how you use it.

I'm planning to make a site to promote firefox and put the adsense refferal link for firefox...

Nothing alse....

Comment #2

I think you have to contact mozilla before you can register any firefox-related domains...

Comment #3

Personally, if firefox is a tm, then could namepros be a tm?..

Comment #4

Namepros is a trademark.. as far as I remember anyway...

Comment #5

What a sad thread....

Maybe people need to learn what a TM is...

Comment #6

What a sad post....

Maybe someone needs to be more helpful?.

Not having a go at you but if you are going to post things like that then go right ahead and post something helpful along with it.

Anyone who does a tiny bit knowledge will know why I responded the way I did. And looking at the join dates, I would hope we are beyond a question as this one. It isn't like it was a newbie who just joined, then I would would say...

Use the search box and type in "trademark" and read for a week. Then type in "tm" and read the rest of the posts that you missed. Just about every scenario is covered.

Anyone who has not seen me say this, you have not researched at all since I've been saying this like every other thread. The redundancy gets a little tiring, especially for people who have been around for a couple years. That is why it is sad.

Is that better?..

Definitely TM, they can take whenever they want. But thay may don't want to take it from you as long as you use it to promote their products. It depends on how you use it.

I've seen many google names onlines for more than a year, they're always good site and help google promote their products...

It doesn't matter if you are promoting their product or not, it's still a TM violation. Sure you are promoting their product so why should they care? Well, because they are paying you as an affiliate to promote their product, so when you use their name in your domain or in paid search listings, you are effectively making money off of their TM. Its sort of the same concept as someone using your credit card to buy you a Christmas gift.... You're not really getting anything you couldn't have gotten on your own...
