if you're using their trademarked company name, they can certainly sue you.
That was going to be my first question!! Is the name a registered trademark? If so, then it's really not worth the hassle.
i dont think so check who has mj.com registered check who has hitler.com registered are they big as google if not why worry i am not much into legal issues but why not ask your registration site to help you. Tell them you wish to get site registered for another 5 years they will surely guide you. Change ur phone number some friend of yours might have leaked the info
I was under the impression you could use words if people that visit your site don't mistake them for the trademarked company.
For example, there's a store near me called "urban farm" but I dont think they could take my urbanfarm.org site if I dont have anything to do with their business. microsoft.org would be a different story, even if you are selling toilet paper
if they are a global company, then yeah, u will get sued.
they were founded in the USA... now they operate in the UK and Ireland as well.
you sure someones not pulling your leg??
Take it down. It's not worth the hassle for a couple of adsense $
Was it the number ending in 2172? Anyway - your bluff is called. It could get expensive. You should decide your next step very carefully - and in fac tyou should consider consel wiser than bhw.
60 seconds on Google. Seriously, if I can do that, then the professionals can be expected to have you cold (I also found -2923, but that's your Da, right?). All I can say is consider the risks, consider the likelihood of losing multiplied by the cost of losing (classic risk assessment), then consider if you want to keep playing this game. (note- it was NOT me who called ;-) )
Separate names with a comma.
