Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

I'm sorry to hear about4 this situation. In your case, this appears that the other party is claiming that you are nfringing on their trademark, but proving it is a different case. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has laid out some elements that you can run through with your own lawyer to determine whether you are going to respond to this infringement lawsuit.

1. The other party has to prove they have a valid, protectable trademark and that they own that trademark;

2. The other party must prove that your mark is similar and you used it without the consent of the other party in a manner that is likely to cause confusion among ordinary consumers as to the source, sponsorship, affiliation, or approval of the goods.

So, it's a factual argument they would have to make. If you have a different coloring, design, style, slogan, or have different products altogether, then those elements will likely not be met.

You may want to consider just writing a cease and desist letter advising them that without proper legal authority, that you are not required to transfer the domain name.. Lawyers use letters like these often to enforce their client’s rights. Here’s a website that has a good template (click here). It only costs $10 and it is way cheaper than litigation.

did you have other questions for me at all?

they own trademark , i didn't sell anything , i don't have a website
can they force me to transfer domain name
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

I see what you mean. If you didn't sell anything, don't have a website, and there is no court order forcing you to do this, then no, you do not have to transfer the domain name.

Did you have any other questions for me at all?

they are saying it is trademark infringement , I need to transfer domain
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

You're not required to transfer anything. You may want to consider asking them to cite what authority that says you have to transfer it over without a court order. This is a good way to call their bluff. Besides, only a judge or a jury could even say for certain whether you're violating their trademark so you do not have to rely on their assertions. Does that make sense? What else can I help you with today?

should i send them cease and desist letter advising them that without proper legal authority, that you are not required to transfer the domain name. or ask them about there authority?
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

You got it. If you were my client, and there was serious doubts about the claim, it's exactly what I would do.
