Give them the domain.
Looks like they only want you to cancel the forwarding and put the domain in their name. Meaning it'll still be in your account.
I'd change the details as they state, unlock the domain and then email them back to say you have complied and the domain is unlocked ready for them to transfer it out..
They can then transfer the domain out (make sure you've changed the contact emails so if they want to transfer it out they get the transfer emails).
Whatever happens you won't be able to keep the domain and it is far better to give in now than go to WIPO (you will lose it in the end anyway)..
You seriously didn't know this sort of thing can and does happen?.
If you didn't, you found out the hard way. It's your call whether to do as they.
Say or not...
I have a dedicated server with godaddy and I register this domain to make all my domains using 'ns1.godaddyns.com' as DNS server...
Heheh...silly rabbit trix are for kids.
Give them the domain...instead use a 3 char .net like m9g.net ....NET's are cheap and shorter is kinda cool..
Yea, I have to give them the domain.
And I have to update all my domains' dns now...
I would like to see Godaddy waste $1500 on getting that name that isn't worth anything, but I wouldn't like to see you labeled a cybersquatter. Up to you...
I will never understand why people reg a name knowing copyright issues. Makes no sence..
Meet them head on friend. Make them pay to dispute it. Remember, it's not what you have, it's what you do with it. Show them that you're not intentionally creating any confusion with the name.
Aside from that I would have registered something a little more personal.
Are you joking? If not, please never give legal advice ever again.
It's clearly infringing on their TM, if you fight it, you get labelled a cybersquatter over a worthless name. Give it up and move on...why do people try to fight when they are 100% in the wrong?..
It wasn't "Legal" advice. Meeting someone head on can sometimes help shape the law. No offense...
Sorry, but I agree, that's absolutely terrible advice.
Meet them head on to change laws? I think not. He is clearly in breach by using someone elses registered name in his domain name, and he doesn't stand a hope in hell of keeping it - even if he decides to fight it.
Why waste his time and potential money fighting it?..
But this opinion is clearly said without the knowledge of all the repercussions associated with such an action.
"It wasn't "Legal" advice. Meeting someone head on can sometimes help shape the law. No offense.".
Or it can send you to the poor house and be labeled a squatter. You do know the penalty for squatting is $100,000.00 and if a big company wants to make an example of you, you could be drained financially...
He has a great point, considering the keyword in my statement was "sometimes". But like I said before, grab something a little more personal. Why would anyone want to promote a registrar anyway?..
I would just let the have the name back. Not worth the trouble..
Hey ivan....plz keep us updated..
Did you transfer the name to godaddy?..
