Celeb domains?

Discussion in 'Domain Names' started by Brian123, Apr 30, 2015.

    Is it worth buying domains with a celebrity name in it?
    For example BritneySpearsVideos.com?
    Is it worth it, or could you just end up in a lot of bother?

    I guess if you plan on using it as a dedicated gossip/fan blog or something with just that celebrity it might get some traction. Or if you get something like BritneySpearsSexTape.com (or something like that) and have a page with celebrity sex-tapes it might also work...

    But it's hard to see that the domain by it self would be worth a lot without any relevant content.

    I think it would work because of the famous celebrity BritneySpears a famous singer but I think the guy who talk about the sextape might be a good idea..

    If you ONLY plan to distribute/offer Britney videos I think a domain with "Britney" in the domain will work fine.

    Wrong. That's the exact opposite of what you should do. A celebrity's name is ~no different from a trademarked businesses name. After all, they're spending all of their resources to build their brand. If you're using their name and profiting from it, than you're squatting, infringing, etc., and can be slapped w/ a udrp.

    All in all, definitely not worth the bother.
