The most well known cases involving "[insert name]sucks.tld" are associated with Dan Parisi. You should be able to find lots of revelant information if you look up the cases.

Thanks for the tip. I did find good information there, but still nothing in the last couple years. Is it safe to assume that nothing has changed in this area?

I will do some research on Dan Parisi but
does anyone know if it is the same with domain such as
if you want to set up a site reviewing a product of a company
lets just say.. BurgerKingReviews.com and want to set up a site to
review the products, is this a legitimate use of the domain
or can it be taken away as part of the domain is a trademark?

Those are probably questions that you should ask your attorney. Members of WebmasterWorld, myself included, do not offer any legal advice.

I wasn't looking for legal advise but figured if somone knew of any other cases/examples I could research that they knew of then it would lead me in the right direction. I did some other research and found a great example of case law which someone had to go through with a domain. It is Taubmansucks.com. If anyone wants to research it even the ACLU got involved to help this domain owner.

There are many sites that do operate with Namesucks.tld.
But they can be hit with C&D letters for infringing on trademarks. It's a risk, but at the same time it could be argued that under free speech these sites should exist.
It's a fine line . . . and I'm no laywer ;)

Please do not post specific examples of 'sucks domains'. Thank you.
