Contacted by trademark holder but they never followed up

    I registered a domain name back in late 1997 and then in 2006 someone trademarked the name. Side note, not that it matters, a month before they registered the trademark they registered the domain name in one of the newer TLDs. Then a couple years later I received an email from them telling me that they own the trademark on the name and instead of filling an intellectual property claim they would like to talk to me. I wrote them back telling them that I had no interest in giving up the domain name. After that I never heard from them again and it's been well over 10 years now. Should I consider my self fairly safe now since they contacted me with a claim telling me about the trademark but then didn't follow up on it (enforcing it)? I'm not in the same business as them either. Totally different areas.

    Why don't you tell us the domain name & trademark? Otherwise, you're not really giving us much to go on.
