Domain Name Legal Question

    Im looking to buy a domain... it is
    bestkeyword.com

    someone has
    bestkeywording.com

    we would both be in the same market and local area. Is this any potential legal problems?

    for famous brands/big companies such as google,yahoo,ebay,amazon..etc
    there is a legal problem, if some one registered the name googlee or gooogle or yahooo..etc
    but for small websites, i do not know maybe it is ok
    you should consult a lawyer, or post a question in special forum for lawyers and legal issues .

    So I put bestkeywording.com in my browser and no site came up. I did a whois and the name is available. So you do not have a problem.

    If you have registered a domain like googlee.com for example then you'll have problems when ever you register a trademark looking domain then you'll have to worry other than that if the company don't have their trademark registered then you can register a domain like it.
