Q.If I receive a cease and desist for my domain name what should I do?

A.If you receive a cease-and-desist letter, do not respond yourself. A cease and desist letter is serious, and may be followed with a lawsuit for trademark infringement. In nearly all cases where an innocent domain name owner lost his or her domain name, the domain name owner responded without counsel and said things which later worked to his or her disadvantage. If you are an innocent domain name owner and if you respond through counsel experienced with domain name cases, the odds are that the other party will leave you alone.
