Suppose there is a trademark called "Rubyblock" and you buy rubyblock.com and name your app "Rubyblock" is there some legal risk?

If yes, how do i can check this before to name the app and buy domain?

  • This isn't a webmaster question, it's a legal question. That said, trademarks, servicemarks, & cet, are managed by the US Patent and Trademark Office. Go to uspto.gov to do a TESS search.

  • @HugeNut It really depends on which country the trademark is in, and how it's being used. See these questions: webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/50214/… and webmasters.stackexchange.com/questions/53455/…
