Hey guys, here is my question about trademark infringement.
Last year I’ve bought a domain name from a pretty exotic part of the TLD list.
I’m not going to be too specific, let’s say the domain name is 'my.contact'.
This example domain perfectly fits in my current issue, it’s a pretty generic word 'my' and it resides on '.contact' TLD.
Here is the problem. There is a successful web or app on domain name 'mycontact.com', it’s pretty active and they even own the trademark 'mycontact'.
(note: this is not the real domain name, but it fits in my example.)
I’ve bought this domain name in the 'General Availability' period, which is before the 'Trademark Claims' period.
I was informed that in this 'Trademark Claims' period I can lose this domain name during the dates from 2020-12-02 to 2021-03-02, fortunately, it did not happen.
My questions are:
In my defense:
thank you in advance
