Can website name by trademarked? Chinese registrar writes to me for permission! Green_Grass msg:3634927 11:38 am on Apr 25, 2008 (gmt 0) I need some advice.
My website name is quite catchy..
A registrar in China has written to me asking for permission to register my website name in Chinese to their customer and the customer wants to trademark the name!
Does he need permission. Is it a scam. can he register my website in Chinese? and can he trademark (brand) the website name as his own.
What kind of implications can I have in the future if he does this. Does my current domain name go under risk. Can he grab my english name by claiming I am squatting? Pls guide..
Thanks for any replies.
