I have a situation where I purchased a domain name about 8 years ago. It was an abandoned domain that was informational, with no product to purchase. Nor did it offer advertising through the site. This site was basically a list of links that were reviewed by the original owner.
Can I now develop this domain into exactly the same subject as the original? I'm not using their previous information at all to construct the information nor stealing their original content. I tried a search on the USTPO site and I didn't see a registered trademark for the name or the site.
