Cease and Desist letter by email - how to respond? Just received a Cease and Desist letter saying we have to stop using a .eu domain name (just a landing page at the moment - and gets about one visitor a month). Even though it is two generic words and the case is arguable, I haven't got the money or time to take onboard their nasty-sounding lawyers. Still, I think they are idiots for not bothering to apply for any .eu domains they feel they had rights over when the mechanisms were in place. I acquired the domain name in Landrush. They are only agreeing to pay the transfer fee. There was so much competition for .eu domain names, I had to sweat so hard to get the ones I did. I only got about 0.1% of the domains I tried to register. Do you think it's worth asking them for something above and beyond the transfer fee? I thought of doing this by telephoning them, so that they don't have any written documention which they can present and say we are CyberSquatters. I am in no position to fight them in the arbitration court over control of the domain and realise I will lose it, but obviously want to make some money for the time and hassle. If they take it to the Czech .eu arbitration court, it will cost them about €2,000 + fees for their lawyers. Say I didn't agree to transfer the domain name to them for just the transfer fee and they took me to the Czech .eu arbitration court. Is it common for companies in this position to try to recover their legal fees from the party they acquire the domain name from? Thanks a million.
