    Hello guys,

    today I was browsing for some random domains and found one domain which might be worthy or maybe I just wasted $50 on it.

    I bought this domain : youtube.net.pe
    as you know this name is a copyright of youtube so maybe they will catch me or seize my domain ? by the way I register the domain through Namecheap for $50 and I host it on my personal server but its not live yet coz of DNS propagation.

    what you guys think about it? did I just waste my $50 or what ?

    Google is very protective of their brand so you may get a notification (letter from their lawyers) at some point. You can probably get away with using it for a while, or may never get on their radar and use it for ages, but I would not put a lot of eggs in that basket.

    No they will not buy it as that would liquidate their position as to their trademark/copyright.

    If I were you I would use it while you can, make what you can, and perhaps G will never come looking. I've gone through that with Google though and they are aggressive in their protections so you may or may not get your money's worth.

    This.

    I had a domain with the word Google in it long ago. They were knocking on my digital door within a month of my site being live, and deindexed it immediately after emailing me.

    9xbuddy is a site to download youtube videos, you need to put 9x just before the URL of that video.
    Like, if Video URL : youtube.com/?watch=xcnvc

    and to download you need to change url to=> 9xyoutube.com/?watch=xcnvc

    this has been happening from last 1 year, is it fine then ?

    i think OP and this is not same, hmm, may be, idk..

    In that case OP can create a youtube downloader and ask the users to replace .com in the youtube url to .net.pe to download the video :)

    They can't just take it straight off you. What happens is you have to cage fight Matt Cutts for it. But don't be fooled by that little chubby exterior, he is a real animal when it comes to protecting Google and associated companies.

    you might aswell throw $50 away, years ago i bought a domain name with the word olympic in and recieved a letter from their lawyers and spent weeks talking to them to convince them not to take me to court. Just stay away from any brand names in domain names just not worth wasting the money as i found out over several stressful weeks
