    Is there a problem with registering a domain such as ebuyshirts dot com or ibuyshirts dot com?
    I've seen a few out there like ebuyautos, but is this considered too close to ebay whom I understand has a stranglehold on the internet almost as tight as microsoft.
    Either way, e and i are very common SLD prefixes, and the word buy is about as generic as it gets.
    Any comments will be much appreciated!

    Those domains are growing in popularity as more and more domains get registered. I personally like the idea and invested in one myself (see sig) so I think they are a great idea myself

    I see no live trademark applications for ebuy but there are applications for ibuy and ibuy.com that might cause problems down the road.

    Thanks for the reply!
    I checked the database. There's a ton of citations there. I thought that might be good since it apparently has such a broad application.
    What about the mark specifically jumps out at you as a potential problem?
