C'mon this is not even a question mate.. why will they have a problem..
if the website is not impersonating the similar name, taking advantage of its brand value in anyway, nor if its in the similar business model then I dont see you getting in any trouble. Also the word "Idea" is not really a name to begin with. Its just that Aditya Birla built something using that word.
Hope this eradicates your doubt.

What about facebookmusic or googleclothes?
 
Idea is a very generic word, so i don't think you'll have a problem combing it with another word. Also, we have no idea what and or how copyright rules apply in your country and if Icaan has a jurisdiction there.
 
That plays a role in a keyword in the domain.
This can give you a little help, but nothing "super"

You can check this video for more ;):
 
Ofc you are not gonna get in trouble, it's simply domain name, nothing else, you are not taking their content, names or smtn. So go ahead and take that one ASAP ^_^
 
You can buy google2.com as well if your content is different, nobody can take action!
 
You can NOT use someone else’s trademark in your domain name (if it’s trademarked, which you can find out by doing an online search at the USPTO website) without running the risk of your getting legally challenged (typically a cease and desist notice) with a trademark protective lawsuit following if they are serious or if they feel your business might pose a problem. Google is notorious for protecting their trademarks rigorously.
 
No matter whether you violate the law or not, if that company decides to sue you just because they THINK you are abusing their trademark, you are in trouble. If you are planning to use that domain to offer products or services that are even remotely related to the other company's business ýou will almost certainly get sued. I know of one case where Apple wanted to sue a local coffee shop that runs by the name "Apple". Lesson learned: don't fuck with the big guys or you are ruined before you make the first dollar.

100% correct. I’ve been on both sides of the equation and the one thing all of these disputes has in conmen: They are extremely costly! Just move with caution and evaluate your risk.
