Default The villages4rent website

Received an email stating the website has to change how it advertises to make no mention of "The Villages" in its title so after 10 years, the website will now be VillageRshomes4rent... spread the word if this is allowed...

Email? I got a certified letter. It's a trademark and they don't mess around.

Take note anyone with "The Villages" in there business name or url, you are more. Than likely on borrowed time....

If you have received a letter for TM infringement, please contact me at lylegant@gmail.com

Yes.. several others have received similar demands in Real Estate and Property Management websites. This is from a document provided by The US Patent and Trademark office. FYI

How do domain names, business name registrations, and trademarks differ?
A domain name is part of a web address that links to the internet protocol address (IP address) of a particular website. For example, in the web address “http://www.uspto.gov,” the domain name is “uspto.gov.” You register your domain name with an accredited domain name registrar, not through
the USPTO. A domain name and a trademark differ. A trademark identifies goods or services as being from a particular source. Use of a domain name only as part of a web address does not qualify as source-indicating trademark use, though other prominent use apart from the web address may qualify as trademark use. Registration of a domain name with a domain name registrar does not give you any trademark rights. For example, even if you register a certain domain name with a domain name registrar, you could later be required to surrender it if it infringes someone else’s trademark rights.
