    Let's say I owned abclost.com

    Could I get the domain taken away for copyright laws or anything?

    If you are breaching copyright then yes, the copyright holder can get the domain from you.

    If you are acting like you are associated with said copyright than yes, it can get taken away.

    yes. You should check for trademark conflict before you register. There are several databases (upsto.gov) to check trademark conflicts.

    Is the domain making you money? High keyword value? If neither then no reason to risk holding on to the domains.

    Its always better to remain safe than having C&D letter. Stay away of trademark domain.

    Staying away from a trademark domain is of course sound advice, but as long as no one goes after you for damages of some kind, C&D ain't so bad, you'll just have to hand over the domain. I've gotten to many to count, but never had to actually fork over any my hard earned cash.

    Yeah I have heard of people just having to hand over the domain. I don't think they would spend money on lawyers to get their money back that means nothing to them. Its a few hundred dollars nothing big.

    Thanks for all your help though!
