Just a reminder that the ability to use something on the Internet doesn’t give you the legal right to do so. A newspaper publisher is suing two women for using the term “Leelanau pages” on websites because of alleged trademark infringement.
No matter how this particular case turns out, there’s a key legal issue you remember. If someone owns the trademark, service mark, or registered trademark, you may infringe upon that mark by using a similar word or phrase as your site’s domain name. Simply because a domain name can be registered doesn’t mean it is legally available for use.
