Have any of you come across an issue with owning a URL that has a specific brand name within it?
Example: If you are a store that sells Levi jeans and you create a URL and create an additional website for your store with a URL of BostonLeviJeans.com or maybe you are a Levelor blinds store in Denver and you create an additional site under the URL LevelorBlindsDenver.com, etc.
I see it in my home improvement industry. Enforcement has been spotty. Some brands are more protective than others.
Do the companies have the right to shut down your site and take the URL from you? What experiences do you have out there?
