Hello domain gurus, I am seeking advice on a letter that I received today from a law firm acting on behalf of a company which has a very similar domain name to me. I registered the domain back in 2007, since then a very small site has sat under the domain name, purely for SEO purposes. I haven't had much time to dedicate to the site, therefore the activity is minimum boarding on inactive. In this letter I received, they state that their client's company is the largest in the UK and has been trading since 2006 and that people hitting my site will be confused with their business and it's a misreputation, and that the company have not given me permission to operate a website that is similarity named to their own. I want to point out that the website does provide a similar service at a much reduced cost, all the content is mine and the cosmetics and logo are completely different, it's been operating since 2007! The client has instructed the law firm to take all steps necessary to prevent any continued infringement and will be taken to the High Court if I do not abide by the terms. 1. Don't register any other domains which are similar to their business name. 2. To immediately transfer my domain to their client. 3. To pay all costs to be assessed if not agreed in relation to the infringing activities. Is this some kind of joke? Surely if this was a High Court case half the internet sites would be wiped out? I have certainly not set out to deliberately gain business from other sites, the name just happens to be similar and I wasn't aware of the company until this point. Any comments/feedback or advice as to how to deal with this one would be greatly received. They obviously WANT the domain name, it is of no value to me just a hobby which I registered several years ago but at the same time their bullish attitude has my back up, a legal threat with no prior contact? Thanks for reading anyway guys, I would truly appreciate any replies.
