Okay I recently as of two days ago after doing their whole song and dance and hiring an attorney and owning website for 3 years which when I was employed by the dealership locally and as their internet sales coordinator strongly encouraged them to purchase the website and they refused it! Cost- $15 per year from GoDaddy citing too expensive they then contacted me 3 years later and ask to purchase it or if I would be willing to sell it to which I stated "sure make me an offer."

They said they would get back with me so weeks go by and I do get contacted except it's by BMW corporate stating via their attorneys that they will be reassigning or essentially stealing my website- no purchase necessary, using icann through the w i p o udrp disputes.

So much for free markets and so much for hard work and so much for capitalism unfair competition and free trade. so much for the rules I want to decimate this site in 8 days that I have it I mean ruin it they threw my work to the ocean so the website that they're changing their name to - bmw xxxxx i would like to have it completely fucked up - any ideas? I don't think this is crazy- I think it's pretty tit for tat. I've got 8 days.

During the time I had the side it was used for free Fair nominal informational purposes to help inform customers on how to better purchase of BMW I had cut the site way down and convert to a broker just in hopes that I was able to keep it I've never sold a website and it had websites for over 8 years I've also let websites expire so I never made any money off of a website.

If you aren't going to make money from it then why waste your time?
Revenge is fine if you gain something from it otherwise there is little point. You aren't going to take down BMW. You are using their trademark?

I've had that happen no less than a dozen times.

Just walk away as you are the one at fault, not them.

If you are going to play the trademark/copyright "rental" game expect this to happen.

Using my cell phone please excuse my typos . I feel where you coming from but I made these fuckers over a million bucks profit when I work for them and set records in my first year just didn't make friends with car dealers are not that type of person I guess all five star reviews across the way I've never had anything less and they even screwed me on the way out then they do this and I was willing to extend an olive branch free and nominal use applied and where they have the money to bring it back here to the states to appeal I would win I used their trademark yes but also use it in conjunction with a service and before that used it educationally which affords it to be used nominal so like Landrover chauffeur is a website that they won the dispute because he used a service in conjunction with very nominal you should have replied to this because I made no money off of the site. I know it's Petty but there is just a point where these that are super fucking rich I suppose I shouldn't say super rich because theft is theft regardless of your SES. Whether you do it by attorneys or whether you do it by a knife or a gun or sleight of hand it still is what it is. it's just some people never get punished for it or never have any negative repercussions because of it. if they'd ask me for the side of probably would have just given it to them but for them to ask me first to buy it then to go and steal it is a little over the top.

You made them all that money and didn't get paid for your work?

And this is not theft - you are infringing on their mark and by law they can take it from you.

OK, it is a little unclear as to who you are dealing with, who is the legal letter from? The Dealer or BMW
https://www.icann.org/registrants

If you are using the Trademark BMW then only they can take the name, if you are using the Trading Name of the Dealer then they can take it from you if their name is a Trademark.
I am not a lawyer so it might be worth getting professional advice BUT if you are using a TM then legally you are in the wrong.
