Infatuas Posted December 31, 2010 Share Posted December 31, 2010 I figure with all of the techies someone is bound to know the answer to this question here, best way is via scenario. Lets say John Doe, is a relatively famous politician, who has his own T.V. show, various published books that are NY Top Sellers and owns johndoe.com. And, lets say that I really admire this person as of recently and think John is a genius, so much so that I wanted to purchase a domain called heroicjohndoe.com and have a blog directed toward his show, post documents that match up with his T.V. listings, and post some of his videos with comment responses to his feeds and etc. Now, this would initially be for fun on my behalf and to satisfy those times of boredom, but lets theoretically say that I begin to receive a generous number of websites visits because people are searching for john doe and my domain naturally matches the results and I want to begin to profit at some point. What are the legalities here? Could I receive a C & D (Cease and Desist) or worse a law suite for profiting from someone else's name? Thanks in advance, Infatuas Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
