Can Someone Use a Trademarked Company Name As Their Email
Hello! Appreciate all you folks on here supporting the forum by keeping the conversation flowing and adding value with your experiences and feedback.
My question pertains to the use of email addresses and trademarks: If someone trademarked, say, "Asian Hustle"...are they entitled to that email in the event something like 'firstname.lastname@example.org' is taken?
I recall coming across something similar happening with Instagram usernames where if trademark/IP documentation is forwarded to Instagram, they could take allow you to absorb a username someone else has created if it isn't in use. For example, if someone created 'asianhustle' as an IG handle but it isn't in use and I have that name, I may be able to present my case to IG and IG is likely to repurpose that username and give me the rights to use it..
