Do the domain names come with a trademark?
For a few different reasons, selling a domain name with a trademark is not possible:
A trademark protects a name in a specific geographical location and within a particular industry. And to trademark any name, the owner must either:
- Use the name in commerce, meaning you have used the term to sell or market a product or service to customers around the United States (or your country) and not just your home state.
- Have good faith intentions on using the trademark in the future.
In addition, the application must be under the owner’s name (or organization), address, and citizenship. Furthermore, the trademark has to be associated with its owner. All of this is up to the user of the name.
