Hello Chris my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Is it a generic name or specific?Alex
Are you in the same industry sector?
Could a customer get confused between you and them?
Ok - but you have the domain, are they saying they want it?
Well there is some merit to what they say. If its confusingly similar and they have been trading then they are right. if you use it for the same or similar industry sector, or the the name is ***** ***** they may have a claim.It does not matter if its not on Google or used. The fact is you have it.
So there is a risk of passing off.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Using a name confusingly similar.
Does that clarify? Alex
