I live in the UK. I have a dot.com domain name. Another company has just bought the trademark in the UK. They've been using the brand for about 3 years.
I've had my domain for over 4 years (bought it from a Canadian corporation) and have been using the brand for a decade.
They're usually in number 2 in most search engines because I have the domain and it must be annoying them.
Is there any chance they could succeed in acquiring it from me now that they have the trademark? They're a big company - and I'm not. Obviously, it's a complicated scenario, but was wondering if the domain name gurus out there have had been in a similar position and what they're experiences/advice has been.
why dont you incorporate the company in USA or buy the copyright for the domain name in the USA?. you can do copyright online with many websites. after all .com domains are meant for companies in USA. so your domain will be given preference if the person goes to court as you will have american value.
If the domain was .co.uk the case would have been the other way.
