    I've had my business for over 6 years its an llc. The domain name for my business was just registered private with go daddy 2 days ago and go daddy says I can't do anything about it unless ive got a patent. What does One do in this situation?


    Forgive me if I've posted in the wrong section.

    Even if you have a trademark (not a patent) you still would have to foot the legal expenses to have the domain taken down, if that is even possible. And seriously if you have had the business for 6 years, you never thought to invest $10 a year for the domain?

    I think you should hire a patent attorney and discuss this with him. A patent attorney is a professional who has specific prerequisites required for representing the consumers in attaining patents.
