    hibu.co.uk seems like it might soon drop

    Whoever catches will have a great SEO domain to do all sorts with or sell for a good sum

    But “hibu” is heavily trademarked, so can the Yell company claw the domain back even if it’s just being 301d and with no actual site on the domain?

    Interesting question, I guess we may soon find out unless @aZooZa is right and it gets renewed.

    There is no trademark question to linger on. It's pretty straightforward.

    If it gets used for anything 'Hibu' is trademarked against, they're breaking trademark laws.

    If the owner decides to setup 'Hibu car rental services' or decides to form a boyband called 'Hibu', no trademark laws are being broken.
