    Does anyone know if I buy a brand name domain such as:

    iPhone4s.com
    sony-xperia.com Would Amazon let me promote these via their affilate system?

    I don't think amazon would mind, but apple and sony would be after your ass for trademark violation.

    is that because it contains the brand name? would it be the same if the sites were:
    buy-iphone4.com
    find-iphone4.com
    iphone4-reviews.com

    if i brought domains like that to set up as an amazon affilate?
