    I have 20 of the best domains for the game.
    The-Ingress.net
    ingressshop.com
    ingresstalk.com
    ingressteam.com
    ingressresist.com
    ingressenlight.com
    ingresshelp.com
    ingress-faq.com
    helpingress.com

    and so on and on...
    The game is starting ( getting out of beta on 14-th of December ) do you think I should wait a few months afterwards or sell them sooner. Also where do you think I should sell the domains? I had some offers of 1k-5k, but I will either hold on for a better price ( for the best ones ) or sell in bulk.

    Best regards,

    Try getting some offers on Flippa. I'd maybe wait for the game to get a bit more hyped up first.

    Do NOT wait much longer, else you'll have to give your domains away for free to google.
    I know a guy who had "android" or "droid" in his domain name and google snached it from him.
    So sell it asap as it gets some hype.

    For example a buddy of mine sold Coca Cola the domain of coca-cola. (our country ) for some big big $$$

    I don't know about this ingress, but I believe that if you register domains specifically to exploit someone else's trademarks or cybersquat then they can be taken from you without compensation. If you already had a legitimate business on them before they came up with it then they couldnt.

    See the Nissan vs. Nissan case for where their strong arm tactics fail, when the car giant tried to crush a small businessman, but unless you're name is actually Ingress, I doubt that case will help you ;)

    It doesn't matter if you've had the domains for 5 years, unless you got a copyright on the name, the owner of the copyright will own your domains. I would sell them ASAP. Everything google has made past Android has turned to a steaming pile...

    I know for a fact my domain is in the clear not sure about the other poster. I've owned this name for over a year now even have a twitter account linked to ingressgame.com and currently the creator of the game at Google follows me for at least a yr now very friendly relation no disputes.
