Hey Guys! I am the owner of [a] website which I am building FOR "High PR Network" Service Providers to Advertise ALL their SEO in 1 Marketplace. However it will be with a GROUPON Style twist - where you will be able to find 50%+ Discounts on your Memberships for your backbuilding SEO.
However, there is 1 site called: [Highprxxxxx.com] as well - and the owners say they do not like/approve me having their name in my url with an "S" in the end. They argue they have worked hard to promote their own networks and I am planning to create a marketplace for any network service provider to Promote their Network on my site.
So my question is: should I listen to them and maybe I am not right and change my name (Even though my name Expresses EXACTLY what I am intended to do and Target that specific niche) or I am not allowed to use it?
I am building this Marketplace in good faith to everyone (Network Providers and SEO Buyers) and I thought they would be Happy since I will be promoting and spending my own money on all SEO FORUMS, Communities to find them customers in Groupon Style DEALS. I even offered them to JV together or be Featured on Home Page Permanently - but they don't seem to like it anyway of me having their name in my site url.
What can you guys recommend? AM I Allowed to use my own [Highprxxxxx.com] great domain or should I change it? By law, am I doing anything wrong?
UPDATE:they claimed and lied they had a trademark registered before I created my website WHICH they didn't. Here is the proof - they just registered NOW right after this insident: http://tarr.uspto.gov/tarr?regser=se...quest%20Status
I mean to protect and use my domain can I also register a trademark with WORDS: "High pr Networks" and send it to my hosting company? Because I got a letter from their lawyer asking my hosting company to take my domain down in 24 hours. What if I register now also a trademark say HIGH PR word .. that means all Highprxxxxx.com will need to be taken down? or what if I just register HIGH PR NETWORKS word as a trademark so I can use my domain? It's a generic term not a BRAND.
