    I have a website on which i got letter to abandon it due to trademark. However i have good amount of articles in it. So here are the questions?

    1) Can i buy a new domain, do 301 from old domain to new one and then after 10-15 days abandon the old domain. Will the 301 power be there if i remove 301 after 8-10 days and hand over old domain to someone else?

    2) What about ranking? Will it fluctuate heavily or just 2-3 positions down?

    3) What about all the old backlinks built to old domain. Will they be effective if i hand over domain to the main company or their power will get transferred to new domain and will remain permanently transferred?

    1) No, once the 301 is broken, PR is no longer transferred
    2) No one can guarantee ranking or tell you where it will rank. Not even google employees could tell you, because there are too many factors.
    3) No, all links pointing to the trademark are theirs.


    Lesson: don't buy trademarked domain names, kiddies.

    301 means "transferred permanently", so does one has to remind Google bots everytime that it has been transferred permanently. Isn't there any other solution to transfer backlink power to new domain and throw away the old one?

    Right, but links point to the old domain, so unless you transfer to your own domain and keep the transfer, you lose the value of the links.

    That's why you see domain squatters buying expired domains with good backlink histories. They get the benefit of those backlinks for their new site.

    I'm only going to answer your first question since my answer pretty much obviates the remaining 2 questions.

    I'm not a lawyer but during the last couple of years I have received several c&d letters from different multinational corporations and I have read a lot on the subject.
    Every time I've received one I have redirected the domain to the host name of the infringed party.

    Assuming you got a c&d letter, the infringed party usually demands you to redirect the domain to their domain, or sometimes simply abandon it (meaning that you use it for NOTHING).
    Redirecting the domain will certainly not be in compliance with the demand since you in that case effectively ARE utilizing the domain (it gets even worse if the new domain has resemblance to the old infringing one).


    One final note regarding "archon10":
    I'd advice you not to take any SEO advice from this user. I had an argument with him a while back and he was simply spitting out falsified information, completely disregarding rational arguments.
