Dude your lawyer dont know what he is talking about. because that does break trademark because you stealing a idea of something that been trademarked..
Even if it is Trademarked It doesnt matter my attorney is telling me. Trademarked items are for products that a company or person intends to sell with their logo or tradename on the product so that their brand is easily recognizable and protected from other people trying to sell their same products. If you own a domain name, but do not intend to sell products with the trademarked words (they must be the exact words trademarked anyways - i.e. TV Guide Online not TV Online Guide) then you are not infringing on the laws surronding trademarks. Trademarks and service marks are defined as laws protecting the brand name of specific companies products...
Hey do you got aim or msn private message me it..
Registering a domain name doesn't grant intellectual property rights, period. It.
Says so in your registrar's agreement, unless you're dealing with one that's out.
Of the ordinary.
What exactly's concerning you, anyway?..
The only thing that concerns me is the TVOnlineGuide.com reg. The other one: EuroExpressTravel isnt trademarked. TV Guide Online has their service mark in the National Trademark and Patent office and Im worried that if I park this domain they may come after me for domain squatting. Legit Concern Correct?..
Especially if the parking page shows ads of competing services, yup. But then,.
A trademark holder can go after a domain registrant anytime.
IMHO your ability to use the domain name is limited. While both the trademark.
And your domain name have different word arrangements, you'll probably have.
A tough time showing users won't likely confuse the 2 given the mark's broad.
Stand by for further answers, especially from the lawyer-members here...
I appreciate any help any other outside lawyers can give me other than my own. I was thinking about trademarking the name in my own way, different from TV Guide...
