    Default Basic questions

    Hi, i am new to the .mobi scene here. I have managed to pick up some major brand .mobi domains. The question is now what? Do I sit and wait to see if .mobi becomes a standard domain for mobile users or contact these brands and try to strike a deal? Where is .mobi really at today and where do you see them in the future? Did i just waste my money? opinions / facts are appreciated.

    hi.. going by your post im gonna guess you're new to the whole domain scene too.

    registering brand names is trademark infringing stuff.. the only deal that is likely to get struck is a WIPO / UDRP complaint filed against you by the brands lawyers if they even think its worth their time.

    Not good, so the fact they have the .com and i picked up the .mobi doesn't mean a thing for the .mobi purchaser? If that is the case then i have wasted my money on some domains.

    Man, went ahead and had the brand name .mobi's deleted. That was an expensive lesson but better than getting in trouble I think you may have saved me from an unintentional headache! Thank you

    A great move man!, you're already well on the way to being a great domainer/investor!
    There's heaps of info here in trademarking etc
    And a few members that know lots more if you ask them.
    What line of business are you in?

    I already respect you more now that you dropped the infringing domain names. In case there's any doubt, have a look at this: .mobi WIPO Stories
