My domain would look like "tiltblah.com". I don't want to mention the real domain name here, because it might be registered by someone else then.
I'd like to register this domain, because I want to create a website with about PC games. I've searched the US and EU trademark databases and found trademark holders like "Full Tilt" and simmilar.
Let's say my domain name goes like "tiltfun.com", and my website is about games, Full Tilt poker (ignoring the fact that they might be out of business) is about games too. This seems to be a risk to me. Same branch of trade & the word "Tilt" is used => risk?
And if there's a trademark holder from a completely different branch of trade, dish washers or anything, owning the trademark "Tilt". Would they want to sue me? In Germany branch of trade is important. If it differs, simmillar domain name holders can peacefully coexist.
I was never so cautios until there was somebody sued by BMW for using the word MINI and somebody in Germany was imho sued because he used a "t-" in his domain name. Deutsche Telekom owns "T-".
In case this question is too specific, how do you generally find out the riskiness of a domain name?
