I recenty bought a new domain for my whitehat niches.
http://yourdomain.net (this is not my real domain name)
and then when I searched it on google if it is indexed I found out that there is the same name as mine which is a legit company. And they promote the same products as mine.
They are currently on Seattle I think.
Do you think they will file a lawsuit against me if they found out that I'm using the same name with them?

This is just an accident I did not intend to copy their names or whatever

Please help me

Regards,


Edit: Should I shutdown my domain and register a new domain?
I really don't know what to do with this and I dont want to get in any kind of trouble

It really depends on what company you are dealing with.
You could put the following on your website:

We are not affiliated with "real company".
Trademarks belong to "real company".
For copyright issues please email us at copyright@mynichewebsite.com

Worst thing that can happen is a DMCA complaint.
It's up to you if you shutdown the site or not.

The company can take you down or even sue you if they really want to. I had a similar experience where I had a domain and my keyword was the actual trademark name and they took me down.

Issues such as this can typically be resolved through email mediation. If it's a trademarked name you could run yourself into trouble. If they choose to take the more formal route, they'll usually start with a DMCA complaint from them to your host, which then requires your host revokes your domain registration. Are you in any way profiting or damaging their brand from using the domain name?

Thank you guys for all of your opinions and I decide to shutdown the domain.
It's better to make a safe move. I don't want to be sued by this company.
