GoDaddy service : Good idea to try GoDaddy?? So a company is launching a new product.. and you reg the domain name...

Theoretically, what are the implications? Say a fairly large company is launching a product very soon.. and you happen to find that the domain name for that product is still available. You do a quick trademark search and find nothing.. So, you register the domain.

Would there be ANY way something good could come of this? Or are you just asking for trouble?.

Just wondering..

Best case - you get a lot of revenue from parking or reselling the name.

Worse Case - you get sued for $100k for cybersquatting..

Comment #1

That would be the worst case as pointed out, is $100K nothing to you??.

Maximize parking or reselling to make money of there trademark = squatting and trouble...

Since you found out they were making it, and decided to 'capitalize' on it, you are in trouble, the TM is implied and pending I assume. But you may be looking at alot of problems, unless you GIVE it away - selling will still lead to problems...

HAve a stupid company with lawyer who have no knowledge in domains or IP law and they may make you an offer you can't refuse, but in the meantime you collect PPC.

**or**.

You have a smart company who employs an IP attorney very savvy with domains and knows about the ACPA and intends to prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

That is the good or bad. But I will be blunt here, actions like your and other domainers who do exactly the same thing is the reason why the ACPA is in existance and why the Snowe bill is being proposed. It is clear what your intentions are and there can be serious consequences associated with them. People may argue with me aobut this, but the fact of the matter is the Snowe bill was introduced for a reason, and the snowball effect will hurt all domainers...
