    ok, let's take an EXAMPLE: I want to start a website called poptarters.com.
    But "Pop Tarts" is a trademark name of Kellogg's.

    Can I avoid the trademark legal issues if I were to put this in my disclaimer?

    The poptarters website is operated by *name*. *name* has no association with Kellogg's.


    Or do I have to "dump" this domain for bumping into its trademark words?

    a better question would be, why ask legal questions of people who are NOT lawyers, but who ARE habitual scofflaws who excel in skirting laws?

    any answer you get here is gonna be opinion/conjecture/speculation.

    What really matters is whether or not you have any content
    or advertising relative to Kellogg's Pop-Tarts®

    If you are POP T Arts
    ( Pop culture T -Shirt Arts - where you sell screen printing supplies for home crafts )

    ...then they can hardly ding you because it is then NOT their trademark.
