    Ive recently registered a .uk.com of a well known company. I have an affiliate program with this company and would like to use the .uk.com domain
    to promote the company but obviously using my affiliate tracking links on the site. The site would have a personal touch, for example with a blog..
    Any advice on whether i am allowed to do this please...

    Obviously you cant register a well known company name and place affiliate links on there trading off their good will and profiting from their reputation and brand, thats cyber squatting and illegal so expect a solicitor to be knocking at your door.

    I think the Tesco v Elogicom case which detailed on Nominet's site will more detail the sort of hot water this type of activity can lead to !
