    Let's say the brand is: ARMANI
    Can I use ARMANl ? The last letter is different, instead of using the "i" with uppsercase I replaced with "L" lowercase

    It's all online, I'm not printing anything :)

    I wouldn't invest too much time or money in that one. If it does any good it's definitely getting taken down.

    It's real, lol. For example, it's legal to own a domain ARMANL.COM ? lowercase its armanl.com

    No. You can't do anything that could be confused with their brand. It violates trademark and probably copyright.

    They can argue that the name is designed to confuse.

    It's a pretty spammy way of doing things imo. If you cross your eyes a little, faceboolc.com could also be mistaken for the actual domain. It's still really crusty though.
