I just got an email that is fully legit from a law firm representing company X. I'm an affiliate of company X and have a site that features their product and company X's domain name is in the url of my site, example, companyXreview.com. I will not fight this because it's not worth the time, energy or legal costs as the site is not a huge money maker. However, I did invest a considerable amount of time and energy is to ranking it and would simply like to get the registration fee back. Do you thinking it's a good idea if I reply to their email telling them that I'm willing to fully comply with their terms and demands but would appreciate compensation in the amount of $12 to covering my registration fees? I'm honestly just wanting the money to register a new domain without their trademark in it and begin re-ranking my terms again. Edit: $12 you say? What a trivial amount in the grand scheme of things, but to give up a domain that you have ranking firmly after all the awesome G updates lately and that makes money on auto-pilot is hard when you can't 301 the offending domain to a new one as per request of the C&D is to hand over domain to said X company. Edit 2: Thanks for the helpful answers to the few of you that left them, to the ones wanting to simply bash/flame over the amount I tip my hat off to you that you can without hesitation hand over a site that is in full compliance with company X's affiliate TOS.
