Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I noticed today that our company name has been registered using a .me.uk. We have the .co.uk and .com
we have had the site running for over 7 years.
This was only registered 6-7 months ago and is in the same market as us. they are bidding on yahoo and basically stealing business from us as they pass themselves off as us in their ads.
How and can we get this domain off them? This really bugs me. I just wanna get their head on a stick...
I'd not worry too much about .me.uk domains in general.
It may be that the other organisation is deliberatly targeting you. If you can prove they are using your trademark, you should have no problem proving it, with time and money.
Alternatively, and probably cheaper, would be to offer them something for the domain.
Finally, if I felt strongly that a .me.uk domain was important to protect my trademark, i'd go and register everything else I could to protect it.
we weren't able to trademark the our name as it was to general, but they are providing the same service as us.
they are only using this domain when you search for our company name and have a redirect from this domain to their main site.
any further advice would be appreciated.
