    Update:

    I decided to go with LegalZoom for the word GamTrak and logo trademark.

    I also registered the following domains.

    Domain: GAMTRAK.INFO
    Domain: GAMTRAK.NET
    Domain: GAMTRAK.ORG
    Domain: GAMTRAK.US
    Domain: GAMTRAK.BIZ
    Domain: GAMTRAK.MOBI

    Really sucks that we have to go out and register crap domains to protect ourselves from scum-suckers who would like nothing better than to leech off our success!

    At one time I had numerous individuals purchasing various .tlds of my domains - most of those were sold back to me at a great profit to the leecher. What really sucks is most of those individuals were members right here at GPWA - one was a former owner. Just the other day I discovered another leech trying to benefit off of an already established domain. IMO they are all unethical pieces of dung as their ill intentions are cut and dry!

    Best of luck to you in keeping them away!

    Even having a trademark won't keep them away - I've had one for years, but idiots still are idiots! Sure you'll be able to shut them down in time, but you're going to have to work at it and in some cases pay out of your own pocket to do it.

    Why do you think they're crap domains?

    I see them as another stream to increase my brands reach. And of course are ideal for additional traffic that you can funnel back to your main site.

    One of my main brands & its additional TLD's receive around 150 unique a day each.
    Multiply that by 9 and that's 1,350 extra unique visitors I'd not have received if it was not for the extra TLD's.

    Maybe this will help you see the BIG picture and help others too.


    Cheers



    Dave

    That is a good idea. I have to figure out the best way to do this when I get a bit of time. Right now they are parked with the host ads so I have to get to it soon.

    arkyt, while this will not prevent ALL folks from infringing on my trademark rights it will make MOST of them think twice! I also feel that I have no other choice but to do this because we MUST take a stand and beat the scumbags that do this type of thing!

    A quick solution is casino rewards. They have a great parking feature (in marketing) and you can redirect to your rewards casinos.

    Certainly if you're going to register them, then by all means utilize them, but if it werent for the scum suckers looking to leech we wouldnt have much reason to register every tld we can get our hands on.

    Default Status Update

    They found a trademark for Gametrak in my category, but looks like it's all good to go for GamTrak!

    Dear Robin,

    Thank you for your Trademark Order #*******.

    Recently, we emailed you a potential trademark conflict for your review. From here, we will continue with your trademark process, unless we are requested to keep your order on hold.

    If our Trademark Team requires additional information to complete your application, we will contact you immediately.

    Default Status Update - USPTO database submission

    Received Your Trademark/Service Mark Application, Principal Register for serial number ********

    MARK: GamTrak (Standard Characters, mark.jpg)
    The literal element of the mark consists of GamTrak.
    The mark consists of standard characters, without claim to any particular font, style, size, or color.


    We have received your application and assigned serial number ******** to your submission. The summary of the application data, bottom below, serves as your official filing receipt. In approximately 3 months, an assigned examining attorney will review your application.

    Currently, your mark is not registered, but rather is considered a "pending" application. The overall process, from the time of initial filing to final registration, can take 13-18 months or even longer, depending on many factors; e.g., the correctness of the original filing and the type of application filed.
