Would it be illegal to make a 'x'brewing.com/ca website if i wasnt an actual registered brewing company? I just want to make it for fun, taking my hobby to a website(always wanted my own website/blog). If it helps im in Canada
Where's your source for this law?Nightshade said:Parking is when you buy a domain name with the intent of reselling it for a profit and not actually using it. People do this with stars names, company names, movie names etc. in anticipation of the value of the name going up or to start a bidding war.
It's not law per se but the precedent has been set in multiple court cases.Where's your source for this law?
Taken from here http://encyclopedia2.thefreedictionary.com/Domain+campingAnti-Cybersquatting: ACPA and UDRP
In 1999, the U.S. government passed the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act (ACPA), which enables trademark holders to obtain civil damages up to $100,000 from cybersquatters. While not directly outlawing cybersquatting, it was an attempt to improve the situation.
Also in 1999, ICANN created the Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy (UDRP) to resolve cybersquatting disputes. If not resolved, trademark holders may still take legal action under ACPA.

Excellent idea.Would it be illegal to make a 'x'brewing.com/ca website if i wasnt an actual registered brewing company? I just want to make it for fun, taking my hobby to a website(always wanted my own website/blog). If it helps im in Canada
Hijacker.I was thinking of starting a small hosting reseller company specifically for home brewers. I am in the biz already, so it would be simple. Would this be a good idea? I know there are plenty of free services, blogspot, etc., but if I could offer a home-brewer focused service maybe I could at least cover my costs and help,out folks like the OP. Thoughts?
