You can always be sued but have you done anything wrong?..
Thats what I'm trying to figure out... Did what happen justify a lawsuit that they can win?..
Let me get this straight:.
You did the equivalent of what i'm doing here:.
My email address is if you want.
I don't see how providing an incorrect email address infringes on anyone ( except that it may infringe against an agreement you had to provide a valid email address TO someone, e.g. whois ).
So, for a short while, you had broken the whois agreement, other than that, nothing? can you "impersonate" via email address?..
It's not just a Who Is violation.
He's saying he (the Seller) is using one or more of the domains he sold for his email address and the Buyer has objected to this "illegal usage".
The emails are obviously going to the new buyer and he wants it to stop.
Anyway that's how I interpreted his posting.
That is correct.
Everything that has been brought to my attention that have been set to those emails have been changed immediately, but I guess it's not good enough. What type of legal trouble can I get into here? I've done everything I can to correct this problem, but not sure if they are going to presue action or not...
This is not a legal opinion but if you made an (honest) error and then.
Corrected it when the error was brought to your attention, what could they possibly do?.
You certainly did not cost them any monetary loss so what damages could they prove? If they pursue this after you made the necessary corrections,.
It would be abusive use of the legal process.
P.S. Just my personal opinion, not a legal opinion...
And it's not like he is USING the email - the new owners would have had to create the account. It's obviously an honest mistake. People need to calm down...
He can very easily block specific email addresses from receiving email at this domain, so it would be way overkill for him to launch any sort of legal attack against you. Just MHO..
