Hi all,

Sad news today my website had to be taken down which had finally begun earning due to a legal email received regarding trademark issues...

If we are using game niche names, how can we avoid using their names?!
We obviously need it in the text, keywords etc. - can we do this?

How can I get around this in future?


Thanks, Creative

You can not have a Trademark within the URL keywords are okay, The same goes for making a app with a Trademark name like Clash Of Clans.

ex ClashOfClansCheats.com would be in violation of that Trademark or any brand that the company owns can not be advertised on your Favicon nor Image to direct people to your site.

Hi Rival,

Could you have a shortened acronym which people are familiar with knowing it as.

For example,
Rollercoaster Tycoon is otherwise known as RCT
Call of Duty is known as COD

So, codexploits.com or rctexploits.com ?


Thanks, Creative

For my experience, i can tell you that using trademarks' name in your domain names doesn't change much about conversion for your visitors.
Just use one or two small pictures (sometimes copyrighted) on your page and use blur for your page's background if that's a picture of the game.

Also, use artworks which are made by the game's community, which are, most of the time, not copyrighted and good representations of the game without being in violation with the copyright.

Using acronyms is also a nice way to tell the user that your page is about a game, without being in violation with the trademarks.
