The only practical and realistic answer is "ask the owner of the trademark". No one here is qualified to offer assurances about what MySpace or Google will not do.
Don't count on getting a warning or C&D letter or other warning shot. In the domain/trademark realm, as in the music realm, there will likely be lawsuits filed without warning in the near future.
So are you saying that myspace is suing someone for opening a website like myspace?
So what if someone wants to open a site around the same idea? Like myspace but with different style and features? Is that still asking for trouble?
After reading yor replies i think i will just stick with coming up with something on my own!
Whether it's right or wrong really isn't even relevant unless you have the monetary resources to defend yourself.
If you want to have a service similar to theirs, you have a decent shot at going about your busniess unbothered... there are other sites that are similar to MySpace already. Using a domain name with "my" or "space" in it (and certainly with both my AND space) is just asking for a lawsuit.
