Hello, thanks for your reply. He is not using the domain for anything as yet. He registered it last month, and being a student hadn't got around to doing anything about it! He's very spooked by the letter - what kind of consequences could there be if he doesn't do as they say? Or is the letter an empty threat, especially as they are in a different country? Though maybe being both EU it is treated as the same country? We are all very confused here, and don't want the young lad to get himself into trouble.
Many thanks, Kelly
Thankyou - so if he is not going to use the domain now (I think this has put him off), and has no established connection with the domain name other than he liked it, what should be his next step? Will he get into trouble if he does nothing at all and does not respond, or does he have to let them have ownership now? Thanks again - I just want to make sure he doesn't get into trouble inadvertently!
