Poll: Which Design Do You Like Better?

I think you already know how important Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Pan-Mass Challenge are to me. I ride in the PMC to raise funds for Dana-Farber, and one of the most fun ways to do that is to create a special bike jersey to wear on the second day of the ride and during […]



DomainMarket.com Removes Prices from Landing Pages

About a month ago, I noticed a change to the standard DomainMarket.com landing pages. Mike Mann added a photo of domain broker Tracy Fogarty along with her contact information. It was similar in fashion to how some real estate agents present their home listings and business cards. Yesterday evening, I noticed a small in scale […]

MakeMeaning.com Sells for $710

A couple of months ago, I wanted to check on the hours of Make Meaning, a once popular and growing children’s shop where I previously took our daughter to make custom candles. Unfortunately, my Google searching revealed that the retail chain had shut all of its locations. The company had used MakeMeaning.com for its corporate […]

Register Domain Names Before Filing for TM!

In my article about checking for trademarks, Jackie asked, “Why do you prefer trademarkia.com over trademark247.com?” The simple reason is that I had not used the other website before but found Trademarkia.com to be effective enough to continue using it. Essentially, it gave me the information I was seeking and I did not have a […]

GoDaddy is celebrating Mother’s Day today in the US with a temporary logo and branding change. In place of the standard GoDaddy logo on the company’s website and social media pages, GoDaddy created a special GoMommy logo. Perhaps not surprisingly for trademark protection reasons, GoDaddy also owns GoMommy.com. If you visit GoMommy.com today, you can […]

Check For New Trademarks Before Negotiating Sale

This morning, I wrote about Univision’s acquisition of the TUDN.com domain name. One thing I noticed just now is that Univision had filed for a trademark on TUDN in October of 2018. I think it is a good idea to look at trademark filings before negotiating the sale of a domain name. There are probably more […]



Univision Acquired TUDN.com Ahead of Rebrand

This morning, I read a Deadline.com article about Univision’s rebrand of its Univision Deportes network. The new brand name will be TUDN. Smartly, it looks like the company acquired the brand match TUDN.com domain name in advance of the acquisition. It does not look like the matching @tudn Twitter handle was acquired by the company […]
