Author Topic: Business name not trademarked, but domain name already registered. Problem?  (Read 460 times)

Hi all,

I want to use a name for my new business. The name is pretty generic/descriptive, let's take ''marketing knowledge'' as an example/illustration. The business name is not trademarked as far as I know, because it couldn't be found on eSearch plus (european trademark database) or the Trademark Electronic Search System (TESS).

But there is a domain name already registered for that name, Is it okay if I use this name for my business and register the .net version of this domain?

Or is it trademarked only because someone has registered the domain name for it (without having built a site for it)?

Thanks in advance!
