Hello, I recently backordered a domain name through Go Daddy. The problem is that the website I backordered is a company. However the name is generic. I checked the WHOIS, and it hasn't been updated in 2 1/2 years. The website still exists though. If I successfully backorder the domain, then can the company get it back from me?
if it is generic and you use it in the generic sense, there shouldn't be a problem. If you get jaguar.com and sell cars... they could take it from you. If you sold jaguars (the animal), they couldn't do anything about it because you cannot trademark a generic term for the generic purpose I believe.
