When someone registers a domain name that includes the name of a major trademark, it is advisable to use extreme caution if you want to prevent being involved in expensive lawsuits.
Recently, a small car repair shop in Germany found itself in the midst of a legal battle against French car giant Peugeot. To promote their car repair and tuning facility, they had decided to register the domain name Peugeot-tuning.de. Needless to say that the German branch of the French car manufacturer Peugeot didn’t waste much time suing. The court battle turned out to be very interesting.
