Quick question:.

I have a celebrity's name in 3 different domains ("name".org, etc., etc.).

What are your thoughts about putting them up for auction?.

Are there any potential financial risks that could follow me after they are sold ?

Are the sites developed? did they ever have ads on? theres nothing wrong with selling legitimate fan sites as I am aware, bar the fact they could say you made a profit on there name, talk to DNquest he knows alot about this kind of deal...

Comment #1

Thanks for the reply.

They were parked for a short while, but I never had a developed a live site. I thought of using one of them as a fan site too.

Anyone else have any thoughts.....

Bad idea Yes, you could be held liable and a TM holder could come after you under the ACPA to collect damages. Does this happen, not really.

Cool Phillip, it pays off to be the #1 when it comes to legal questions, even you are not a lawyer :-).

Disclaimer: Whenever you have a doubt about squatting, legal questions....consider asking DNQUEST!!!!!.



Comment #5

DNQuest has a far better understanding of this stuff than most, and most lawyers, unless they have specialized in this area for a while, are pretty clueless...

Comment #6

Thanx for the kind words, but there are much better here, I just have no life and able to post more at times. Any delicate situations, please, contact the esteemed attorneys who frequent the boards here. I can only regurgitate what I learned over the years from the smart people and try to give my honest non-biased opinion (and at times, as I am told, harsh and cold)...

Comment #7

Harsh and cold is sometimes the only way people get the message,.

Good luck to the OP, I hope he gets squared away, and your right, namepros is a fantastic resource...
