Also, are names of cities copyrighted? If I buy a domain name with the intention to sell it 1 day and it is the name of a city, is this legal?

1. A premium domain is a “.com” domain that consists of one or two keywords. It is a name that is usually short and easy to remember and memorable. This gives it market appeal. For example, the domain name would be considered a premium domain name. These names are ***** ***** for registration; but instead has to be purchased from a domain name seller that owns it.
2. Brandable domain names are ***** ***** can be used for a variety of websites. For example, a name like Innovita does not convey the site's purpose so it can be branded to use for pretty much anything.
City names are ***** ***** protected under copyright or trademark laws. If your selected domain name that is the name of a city is not already registered, then it should not be a problem.
