Hope I am not breaking any rules posting this, might be useful to those with Marketplace listed domains. That’s why it’s in this topic.
After our domains got indexed I decided to google them one by one, to see how they rate on search pages (well done SH, 1st page every search). Imagine my surprise when I found a facebook page named as one of my domains and using the logo SH created as profile picture. Bluebuttoned it, and contacted page owner kindly asking how he acquired the name and logo.
Explanation is this - he came up with the name (OK, plausible) and when he googled it he found a picture that matched his page name and used it (?!?!?!). His profile picture was posted in May. Anyway, after short discussion he agreed to remove the logo, but he wouldn’t rename the page. I left the matter in capable SH support hands.
What do you guys think, trademark violation or just an unfortunate coincidence?
edit: just sold my first marketplace domain last night, totally different feeling from winning a contest…
edit 2: as @lightless said in a reply, trademark has nothing to do with this, my wording was not good, I don’t know how else to say ownership of domain+logo.
