Hi Friends :)
Hi Webwork :)

I have a question. Give me just few solid effective tips to avoid Trade Mark Infringement. And another question. if I developed a domain for 2 years, then if a company sends me C & D telling me that I'm violating Trademark, will I face any trouble?. THank you very much.

What I will do is that---
I will buy a name .com, .net, .info, .org... for 2 years each for developing a name. Is that enough to avoid trade Mark issue?

Avoiding infringing someone else's trademark, or avoiding someone else infringing yours?

For the first, the best thing to do is be very creative about your choice of domain and brand. Get hold of a dictionary of obscure words, and scour it, or make something up. And avoid pairing it with generic words like Easy, More or My, or anything else likely to be used by a big corporation.

For the second, just get the main tlds and the country domain of your place of business, and don't worry about the rest. There are so many extensions out there, but there's no point in getting them all unless you have deep pockets, because it's just a ploy by various registrars to wring more money out of webmasters and companies. You can't reasonably expect to cover all your bases by buying up zillions of domains.
