There is a small company already running into business with this name (this company is not registered on NASDAQ or my country stock exchange) but registered as a M/S or PVT. LTD. Company. Since the domain name is very important for both of us, will I get into trouble if I am using this name?
This domain was already in existence couple of years back (not sure who was running the same), I bought it freely through one of the domain registrars.
Please throw me some more questions if I am unable to clarify this is very important before I start working upon this domain name (I am planning to make this domain into a full-fledged portal including ecommerce).
(name of country)(name of product).com/org/net/etc
Unless the product is a trademark or otherwise suggests a specific company, (which is not yours) rather than a mainstream product. If you are in doubt - ask a lawyer - or let your competition ask one for you. Either way, you got it for now - but if you are planning to do something big with it and invest in it - Ask a lawyer, trademark it, and do whatever you can to ensure you keep it.
*edit - details
