    Guys i received this mail just today. I don't know what or how to answer their email. I need some advice on how to take action on this. Below is the email that i received.

    We are a Network Service Company which is the domain name registration center in Shanghai, China. On August,26th,2010, We received HUATAI Company's application that they are registering the name "MY DOMAIN" as their Internet Trademark and "THEIR REGISTERED TRADEMARK DOMAIN 1","THEIR REGISTERED TRADEMARK DOMAIN 2" ,"THEIR REGISTERED TRADEMARK DOMAIN 2"domain names etc.,

    It is China and ASIA domain names.But after auditing we found the brand name been used by your company. As the domain name registrar in China, it is our duty to notice you, so I am sending you this Email to check.According to the principle in China,your company is the owner of the trademark,In our auditing time we can keep the domain names safe for you firstly, but our audit period is limited, if you object the third party application these domain names and need to protect the brand in china and Asia by yourself, please let the responsible officer contact us as soon as possible.


    Thanks in advance..

    Ignore it they are just trying to sell you domain names you do not need at inflated prices.

    Yeah I get these all the time. It's a company chancing their arm in an attempt to get you to register your name/trademark in all TLD variations to protect your IP rights.

    All they're after is you to register all versions of your domain name via their domain reg service which will cost you a fortune.

    If anyone registers your trademark as a domain name then let them do it as it's very easy to sue them after the fact and take ownership of the domain. Save yourelf a fortune and ignore the email.

    Use a service like
    Code:
    http://www.domaintools.com/registrant-alert/
    and monitor any term that contains your name or trademark. When any domain name is registered that contains the terms your monitoring then you'll get an email sent to you.
