Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
I'm looking for some advice on selling the name privately. I want to unload it without drawing attention such that the 3-letter brand sends their lawyers after me once they know I'm selling.
I know there is an auction coming up at PubCon, and I'll be there, but I'm not sure that's right for this situation.

But if it's a straight four letters, rather than nnn-m or n-mmm, then it is unlikely to be a problem as a domain name - it only would be as a site that plays on the similarity. So your 'sales pitch' could catch you out if you appear to encouraging such use.
If the domain's only 'value' is to someone who wants to misuse it, then your sale at an inflated price (compared to fhjbgfgnx.com, for example - a fictitious site, I hope), points the finger straight at you.
I suspect you are in a no-win situation. A classic double whammy.
