Yes it is illegal to buy a domain of a trademark for the sole purpose of profiting from the name. It’s a form of cybersquatting and Valve could very easily take the domain name back from the registrar and keep it for themselves. The domain is a very poor one though and I doubt Valve will bother taking legal action. No one would be interested in buying that domain unless it was selling for perhaps 20 pence.Andy018 said:Munro ... if this is wrong please correct me but isnt sitting on a domain name JUST because its familiar or recognisable as a brand ILLIGAL?
I mean this guy is basically trying to make a profit off a brand... so if you DID buy that domain you could then be taken to court and have the domain you just spent 500k on removed from your possession and given.... zero in compensation
Thats probably why hes got all that "no refunds" stuff at the bottom of his post
And half-life 2 is double of that time or what? Stupid moron. He will go down.The domain "half-life-2.com" is NOT registered with Valve Corporation, nor will the owner be liable for any copyright violations as the term "half-life" is a common term typically used for a process involving a change (transformation, emptying of contents, change of state, etc.), "half-life" is the time in which half of the original quantity has undergone the change.
