Cool Domain Names

I have found a topic that interest me but I am curious about the legal issues. My idea would be a spinoff of 4anything.com. I would not be copying their site, I would be taking advantage off the concept of putting 4 in front of my particular topic. The domain is available.

Does anyone have any comments about this?

Thanks in advance.

Great topic. In the interest of keeping this a "techie" forum, we've created a business issues forum next door. Legal questions such as this are often discussed there, and there's a similar thread open right now. Check it out over there, OK!

I'll move this post over there, and join in.

Thanks for you cooperation,

I would guess there isn't a problem with it. 4Anything can't really have legal rights to all 4whatever.com domain names.

If it's non-competitive, I doubt you have anythign to worry about.

I agree with Arn. Sounds perfectly harmless to me. 4eveyone, 4everything, 4everyone, whatever. Go for it.
