Its not worth it you do not make enough for the hassle.
If the "product" is their trademarked name, or (at least in the US), they were the first to use (First rights of use), then there isn't much you can do.
Anything you do at this point will be avoiding the trademark law which could end up landing you in just as much trouble.
This is just my opinion and not legal advice. This should be taken as opinion and legal advice should be found through a legal professional.
Thanks guys for the replys - It's just that it's number one for a few keywords and I
don't want to let it go without a fight.
I wouldn't give it up. I doubt they are going to spend the money for a suit. I would try to work out a deal with them and give them a piece of the action. Its worth a phone call. Remember lawyers get paid to look busy if they are on the companies payroll, they hardly ever do sh$t, except send "scary" letters
Sell it for 2k dollars. Its under a the price of a legal stuff, so hope that they will accept it.
Stay away from these problems.I am sure you will find some good domains which will earn you more then what you are making from this sites now.
its not making enough money to invest time, energy and more money to get away with it..
also.... hate to add to your situation.... but its against amazon TOS to use trademarked names in the domains you use to sell their stuff..... just saying..
I wouldn't solicit medical advice on BHW, and I'd be about as ready to listen to "legal advice" from here, too. Got a letter from a lawyer? Go talk to a LAWYER.
Thanks again for all of the help people.. I have alot to think about
I would talk to a lawyer too.... I have a lawyer friend who gives me advice... but I always recommend to affiliate marketers to invest in prepaid legal... though they may not be experts in intellectual property and other matters we as marketers get involved in, they can give you better advice a lot of times than someone who is not a lawyer. At the very least you can get a professional opinion.. But if it were me, I would ditch the site (it's not worth messing with attornys) and do it over again using the same methods you used to make the income that the current site is bringing. Lawyers can be expensive...
I would do plan B with the exception being that not only would you have private who is, but you would purchase the domain anonymously. I now purchase all my domains in the bahamas anonymously. changing or making up names is easy to do, but it doesn't mean shit once you regristrar gets the 3rd letter saying that the registrar will be paying their attorney fees - they will sell you down the river and reveal your payment information.
you must purchase the domain and pay for it anon as well it's not easy to do as i found after purchasing 3 paypal accounts and vcc's that didn't work. I finally have a method in place to do it, and now brother, i never see a single letter and they can go to court if they want to get it shutdown - that is the only was to buy domains as far as im concerned.
Separate names with a comma.
