    I'm going to purchase a domain, in the format of youtubeaccounts.com, where youtube would be the trademark and accounts is the service descriptor. As I understand it, under nominative fair use I have the right to do this, so long as my service pertains to youtube accounts, I don't claim affiliation with youtube (I will post disclaimers), and I keep mention of youtube and its other associated trademarks to a minimum.

    I'm worried that even though I have the legal right to do this, if the legal owner of the trademark files a complaint or UDRP, my registrar will simply forfeit the domain without actual investigation because it's cost effective (I'm looking at you GoDaddy). Anyone have any experience with this?
