Could the rights of a co.uk domain (to matching .uk) be trumped by a Trademark holder? Here is a scenario, ****.co.uk registered ten years ago, not a generic name but no conflict at the time with any business or TM rights The name has subsequently been adopted for a major global product, over 180 million units sold at an average price of several hundred pounds. ****.co.uk has automatic rights to ****.uk, but there would be no point in registering ****.uk If the TM holder had grounds to claim ****.co.uk I am sure they would have done so. I wonder what their position would be if ****.uk is registered. The TM holder has no interest in buying ****.co.uk and the domain will not be gifted to them. I have a charitable third option if they would like to get in touch. I expect most Acorn members can identify the name in question. There are no prizes for posting the domain, and doing so would probably not be helpful to us or Admin.
