No, You Can’t Register a Famous Trademark

 

No, You Can’t Register a Famous Trademark as a Domain Name Just Because “It Was Available”

Yah! I know it 🙂
But here is a nice excerpt of a post that I’v found.

 

Caller: I don’t mean to be rude, but the domain name was available and I paid $10 for it, so it is mine. How can that be illegal?

Domain Name Lawyer: Why did you register the domain name?

Caller: To sell it to Coca-Cola. I came up with this awesome idea of a website all about how people love Coca-Cola, and YourCocaCola.com would be just the perfect domain name for them to launch this site. I can’t believe their marketing company didn’t come up with this themselves….Anyhow, Coca-Cola earned about 2 Billion dollars last year based upon my research, and I think that 1% of that would be a fair price and I would share what we get with you if you will help me sell it to them.

Domain Name Lawyer: I do not mean to be the bearer of bad news, but registering a famous trademark like that to sell to the trademark owner is unlawful, and you best just hand over the domain name before you get into any more trouble. Sorry I can’t help.

Caller: You mean to tell me that Godaddy lets people register illegal names? Are you sure that you are really an expert in domain names? Because I spoke to a couple people before calling you, and they all told me stories of companies paying millions of dollars to get their domain names back after they inadvertently lapsed, or because someone got to them first. So I find it really hard to believe that a big company like Godaddy would allow someone to register a domain name that was illegal.

Domain Name Lawyer: Look, I have been practising domain name law for like 12 years, and there is something called the Anti-Cybersquatting Consumer Protection Act that makes this kind of thing illegal.

Caller: Did you say “legal” or “illegal”?

Domain Name Lawyer: Illegal.

uniregistry a few days later..

This is how it looks..
My concerns about any registrar is if they steal our domains…
I’v heard some big complains about some companies taking/ripping out their costumers…
But if a guy with almost 600 domains, like Doron Vermaat moves them to Uniregistry that might be a good sign. Lets see how it ends.

MySQL vs/and/plus/more JSON

Here are a few things that we can use / read about MySQL and JSON.

Small benchmark tests of reading 20000

Krasimir Tsonev has made a small benchmark tests of reading 20000 from a MySQL db and from a JSON file.

I’m gonna just put the *end* results. You can read all the article on Krasimir’s blog about MySQL vs JSON file data storing benchmark results.

MySQL

ab -n 30 -c 30 http://localhost/mqsql.php
Concurrency Level:      30
Time taken for tests:   30.518 seconds

 

JSON

ab -n 30 -c 30 http://localhost/json.php
Concurrency Level:      30
Time taken for tests:   3.384 seconds
MySQL query to JSON
username email
mike [email protected]
jane [email protected]
stan [email protected]

The MySQL query

SELECT 
     CONCAT("[",
          GROUP_CONCAT(
               CONCAT("{username:'",username,"'"),
               CONCAT(",email:'",email),"'}")
          )
     ,"]") 
AS json FROM users;

The JSON result

[
     {username:'mike',email:'[email protected]'},
     {username:'jane',email:'[email protected]'},
     {username:'stan',email:'[email protected]'}
]
