    Not the greatest name in my portfolio...

    But perhaps useful for a company selling the new Apple iPhone X???

    Thanks

    Boo hiss. I hate seeing this sort of brand piggybacking.

    Thanks for the feedback, it was indeed purely an impulse buy after seeing recent announcement from Apple - I was thinking perhaps it might be useful for someone or some business wanting that could use it for SEO or forwarding purposes (and I'm sorry @martin-s, but aren't domainers in this game in order to spot opportunities?!)

    One man's opportunity is another man's brand piggybacking, is another man's cybersquatting, is another lawyer's copyright infringement case.

    I would cancel this registration so fast. Apple are really good at protecting the copyrights they have and I'd imagine they would have lawyers specifically looking for this sort of registration after a new product launch. I'd give it two weeks before you get a letter from a lawyer.

    @amfletchers @martin-s @BeachLife

    Genuinely appreciate your advice here as I've never purchased a 'brand' related domain before, and don't really fancy Apple on my back!!

    Just as financiers and bankers act upon industry / corporate / share news, I was acting upon the same from a domain perspective - but if you guys genuinely believe I'm asking for trouble by simply owning it then I'll drop it like a sack of bricks...

    Let me know if that's the general consensus (and again, appreciate the advice)

    Negative value. Either you lose it without a fight, or you pay for legal advice and still lose it.

    Sorry, missed that bit. Good decision.
