Using a trademark in a domain name
I've been toying with the idea of opening another forum (my first is finally making it's money back... slowly).
I want to make the forum about a university... However I'm concerned about
- Trademarks.. am I allowed to use a trademark in a domain name?
The university in question has "The" on the front of their registered trademark.
whilst my domain does not, my domain also appends "forum" onto the end. I have also made it as clear as possible that it's not an official site.
The universities domain name does not include "unversity" and my domain does.
- Sensitive Naming.. the use of "university" in a product
I class all my sites as products, as I currently trade under my own name. I know there are restrictions around a companies name including "university" but what about a product?
