    We can't really give you any ideas without knowing what the brand is.

    Not necessarily true, depends on whether the company chooses to enforce their trademark or not.

    OP, PM me the domain and I'll take a look and advise accordingly.

    Well, you may want to look into setting up a review of the brand and add amazon links there

    wait, i cannot have a domain with a brand in it? for example cocacolainfo.com?

    or coca-cola.info?

    that sucks, because i am building one :S

    the content will be informative and the way to monetize it is through adsense... can i get into legal trouble for that?

    I would set it up, rank it, earn some fast cash, then flip it personally

    Depends on the company, so far it's been about 50/50, some companies care about their trademark while others either don't or are unaware.

    My thoughts exactly, I've had lots of success with this. When the brand name comes calling just play nice and turn over the emd.

    Not really big legal trouble.
    They most likely will ask for C&D. At that point, you know you gonna lose it, so explain you have $30 or $40 bucks invested in it and will let it go to them for that amount. They usually understand and agree.

    Just be careful, read up on what you can and cannot do legally. Good luck.

    Check out on their official site for any terms of trademark use they have!
