    is it okay? There's lots of sites that do well wit brand names, but i found a EMD for one of the keywords that brings a good majority of the traffic to the brand name's site. Is it okay to use as long as i sell their product and don't slur the name?

    Things could get ugly. I'd stay away from it if I were you. Owner could notify Google, and you'd get de-indexed. Not to mention that it'd make Adsense a lot more hairy (if you were thinking of that).

    Well it just seems that you should be able to get away with it considering I would be using something such as xxxxxShoes and not the original site such as Reebox.com

    Edit: Plus all the time people use review sites such as xxxxReviews.com
