Hello All,

Is it possible to get in trouble due to the domain name you own? The reason I ask is someone is selling a domain name on ebay that is quite offensive and I am wondering about the legalities of that topic. The name doesnt infringe on anyones trademarks, it is mearly just offensive. Does anyone know more on this issue?

Thanks

-Lee

The domain name is quite pointed; you are absolutely sure you cannot be sued?

Why would you ask that, knowing it is offensive and explicit? :tazz: We won't allow it to be posted here, that's for sure. Keep in mind this is a family friendly site.

To sinisfun: Why is it you are so curious about the legalities, unless you would like to buy it yourself? If it's not something YOU plan to own, then there's no need to worry about it. :) As stated before, many MANY of the trash sites out there have horribly explicit names, and they don't get sued.

'nuff said, question answered, this topic has definitely run its course.
