    Hi,
    there is a domain name that I really want and is not in use but is registered. The people who own it want to sell it for thousands of dollars and I am not willing to pay that much. Is there a ways to obtain the domain by registering business with that name and trademark and then send the a C&D or something like that?

    Thanks

    P.S. it's not a common word like pizza or something like that it's a 100% unique and creative name.

    No, it's unlikely since they had first use of the domain prior to a TM.

    Wow, innovative thinking. Not.

    Think of this.. How much is this name worth to your business. It's obviously not worth it to you that much if you don't have the confidence to make the return back in regards to buying the name.

    just my thoughts

    You can backorder the domain using one of registrars but if the domain is listed for over $1000 then its unlikely you would get it.

    Of cause you can TM it and ask him to give you the domain offering a reasonable price. but its a long shot.
