Hi Guys Been a long time since I was active on here... life has caught up and overtaken me! Will hopefully find some time to give my domains some attention at some point. Meanwhile.... I own a two word generic .co.uk domain. It might be something like 'thatchedcottages' - this isn't it and it isn't immediately similar, but this is close enough to serve the purpose. I used to have it liked to a PPC site, but for quite a while (at least a year or two, possibly a bit longer) I've just had it listed with the registrars’ standard 'This Domain is For Sale' page. A year or so ago I was approached by someone, who it subsequently transpired was effectively working as an agent for a company, who were intending to set up a new venture / subsidiary. The subsidiary was intending to carry out the business of - in my example - renting out thatched cottages. We discussed significant sums for the domain, but they subsequently bought the exact .com equivalent and pulled out of our negotiations. At about that time they also registered 'Thatched Cottages Ltd'. A few months later, they now have a draft website up and running on the .com and I've just received an email from the CEO / MD or whatever he is, which he's actually sent to someone starting work for him, but has misaddressed the email to the .co.uk, instead of the .com! Hence it arrived in my inbox! So - what I really want to know is, what's my position and is my domain under any threat from them? Can they try to claim it? What can I do to protect it? Its value is only really in the renting out of 'thatched cottages'. Should I put up a 'thatched cottage' rental site before their website comes out of beta? Or is it too late? Or is that the last thing I should do?! Is there anything else I should / could do? Approach them with the suggestion that they ought to buy me out to prevent this happening to their clients?!! Or is my generic domain safe for me to keep and at some point, develop in to a 'thatched cottage' rental website, or possibly sell on in the future, either to them, or maybe one of their competitiors who already have a 'thatched cottage' rental business? Many thanks Suzi PS Just to reiterate, the domain has nothing to do with cottages, thatched or otherwise!
