[I posted this on blackhatworld too for more input]

Hey there everyone, so today i bought a domain in with the term amazon in the url

When i was pointing the nameservers my brother had mentioned to me there is a possibility i could get sued


Do you guys think i will be sued for using the term "amazon" as the first keyword in my domain? is there any disclaimer i could make to prevent them from sueing? i came across a few domains that have the term amazon in them but are not apart of them in anyway

EDIT: i am planning on calling them tomorrow
I didnt know the HQ was here in washington thought that was cool

I think it may be down to what you put after amazon. E.g Amazonrainforest.com won't get touched probably but amazonfreegiftcard.com would probaly get taken down.

I think "FB" in a domain is fine.

You misunderstood me. I was saying its not like fb, means u cant register domain with facebook on it unlike amazon where u can.

I had problem when i registered domain with paypal word inside (blablapaypalblalba) and after a week i recived email from ip[spam]ebayenf​orcement.co​m to stop using that domain.
Than I made rederict (301?) to another domain and they stay quiet.
I am not sure about amazon but might happen the same, you will see.
