    what I want to know basically is that if I buy a domain with the brand name hotmail or gmail will sooner or later Microsoft or google will take the domain back and I will lose it?

    This is the first time I create a post so, if it is in the wrong section I request a moderator to please move it, thanks.

    If you buy those domain names first, before they buy then they will choose another names and those brand will be never so popular like now and no one know about that, they will know another names.

    Those names are copyrighted and, while you can register them, they can demand you turn the over to them. That happened to me once when I registered a domain with a trademark. If I hadn't done so, they could have taken legal action against me which may have got my domain registrar account closed.
