Your question was: What program will work with uploading pages to godaddy?.
I really only have one that would be on iffy ground. The rest are generic enough, that I don't believe anyone would ever challenge them...
This is my logic - for right or wrong.
Before the Charlotte city govt comes after Charlotte.tv, they are also going to have to go after the large newspaper company that owns Charlotte.com.
That is not going to happen. Deep pockets. Bad Press. Supreme Court ruling.
Just b/c a bill passes in Congress doesn't mean it will constitutional scruitny.
Any lawyer can make a case that .gov (Charlotte.tv) was designed for public usage. It will be harder to make a case for Charlotte.com or Charlotte.tv.
Also, I seriously doubt the city of Baltimore is going to have much success forcing BaltimoreLegal.net (which has a large sign on the Baltimore Beltway) give up their HostGator without a legal slugfest...
Some good comments. I guess anything can happen. If it does happen it surly would have a tripple down effect in the HostGator industry, going from domainers first, registrations possible, parking companies, lawsuits and etc.
I just think it's a bit far fetched and it's not just the geo market that would get hit hard.
Keep fingers crossed...
I contacted godaddy about this , and got the reply "what's the snowe bill' I replied do a google seach ....... they never replied to that..
I think I am safe but you never know. These days any common word or phrase, no matter how "generic", can get a registered Trademark, and then be abused by the holder of that mark.
Personally I think it is just more of the same: Big government sticking it's nose into areas it doesn't belong. There are already remedies at law for TM infringement. IMHO, Snowe is a total airhead. She has always been an airhead, so this is nothing new. The bigger problem is educating the people that elect people like Snowe to office - the proximal cause...
Percentage worried: ZERO.
Bills are passed to appease some lobbyists that get paid by other groups to pass things. It's a stupid vicious circle of American society. New laws get passed fairly regulary...while I am grateful we are a nation of law...there comes a point where all the laws passed can't be enforced. America is at that point.
At best they would target a couple big time people to scare the little people...
