    Just regged these two
    Will stick a couple of affiliate/amazon sites on them and see if they convert into sales.
    Thoughts? Worth anything?

    No value IMO since they are more likely to cost you money (or worse) in a TM defense.

    Have you considered this?

    Indeed. Hasbro are hot when it comes to trademarks.

    Hmm, the .com has been regged for 10 years with a site, adsense and aff links into ToysRus.
    So that site will be for chop as well you think?

    Never assume that just because someone else is getting away with something you will too!

    I just wouldn't invest my time and money into something that could get taken away at least or land me in hot water with the courts at worst.

    Buy generics and sleep easy.

    Well I have quite a lot of them now too - but no-one gave me an appraisal when I posted the last one: :confused:
    Spanish Mortgage advice from SpanishMortgage.org - site up and running.

    I see the point about wasting time on something i could simply lose though....

    You won't get much response here posting about .ORGs, we are mainly UK domainers.

    Site looks OK and you made it a proper mini-site so well done for that. Would only be worth something IMO if it makes revenue / traffic.

    Its just set up for lead generation as that's my profession - going to keep building them until I dominate google for my Spanish mortgage niche - might be a few years off that though... so long as I can get the basics right. Only started online 12 months ago - pretty steep learning curve.
    Just backlinking it at the moment - the boring part!

    Yes be careful with trademark domains.

    I have just a leter from a company regarding a trademark, its just not worth it, and then if you have built a site and they decide they want it you will have to sign it over to them.

    Not worth the hassle, I advise if it is trademarked just forget it
