    What are the possible implications of registering and running a website with that domain?

    I've been screwed and I want to help whomever comes across this company to avoid my situation...

    Do reference my whole "fighting fire with fire may be a poor choice" post. You could always file a BBB complaint if you really wanted, but I wouldn't take any illegitimate routes that make you as bad as your client.

    Hi Artizhay, thanks for dropping by, but if I was fighting fire with fire, it would be not paying them for something they did for me, which didn't happen.

    I plan on using internet marketing tactics and other internet resources to fight a breach of contract.

    However, the BBB is a good idea, although it didn't help much a while back when a dealership screwed us, they just denied what really was said.

    Thanks

    Oh, BTW, anything to say about the domain registration and website?

    How ill you monetize the website?

    I say that you may have a defamation claim on your hands.

    Monetizing it is the least of my concern. How do I avoid that claim in the first place? Any ideas?

    Naturally, you avoid publishing the defamatory content.

    Definitely don't do anything to monetize it. That'll make things worse. As long as you post facts and have evidence to prove your facts, you can still get a claim filed against you, your chances of winning it should be good though.

    If you have to do anything, maybe don't use the company name in the domain.

    My honest thoughts are that if you do in fact set up such a site, that they'll hit you with a defamation lawsuit and try to bankrupt you as many times as they can. I do not think you should tinkle in their morning breakfast (if you get my drift).

    I have a good idea. Just leave it, take the "correct" steps in filing a complaint against the company and do not make a website out of pure bitterness that can potentially get you into allot of trouble. Just quit now and move on, its not worth it.
