Ok so heres my situation...I used to work for this company and when I quit to start my own business my boss didnt take it too well. I did everything I could do to help him upon my departure to keep his business going steady (even gave 2 months instead of 2 weeks lol) ...but apparently that wasnt enough.
Basically he went out and bought a domain that is very very simliar to mine and has it pointed to his website. We are in the same industry so it could really screw me up. It is my fault for not getting all associated domains but I didnt think he would stoop so low so quick.
It is just one letter change.
Now I am in the process of trademarking my domain name so I have legal rights for it.
My question is do I have to pay to trademark both of those domains in order for him to be forced to drop it?
Or can I just trademark my domain and the laws within trademarking will automatically make anything close unavailable? Forcing him to have to drop it because it is too close to my name.
Does anybody here have legit information pertaining to this situation? If so if you could reply and help me out it would be greatly appreciated ...and if there is anyway I can help you out in return I will do my best to do so.
Thank you in advance and hope to get some good info from this board!
