Pokemon is a trademark

Whenever there is something viral or trending, it seems that people register a ton of domain names to try and capitalize on the trend or participate in it in a unique way.

If you’ve been watching the news for the last few days (or are into gaming), you’ve probably heard aboutPokemon Go. If you haven’t, CNN published an article about it yesterday.

As with other trends, it seems that people are trying to capitalize on it by registering domain names with the word “Pokemon” or other related terms that are likely trademarks of Nintendo. Here’s a tip if you’re thinking about doing it: stop! Registering obvious trademark domain names can be pretty dumb and potentially costly.

Most domain names with trademarks aren’t worth anything, and they can lead to threatening letters, UDRP filings, and potentially litigation.
Here are just a handful of Pokemon .com domain names that have been registered very recently:

  • Pokemon-Go-Social.com
  • PokemonDate.com
  • PokemonGoConference.com
  • ChinaPokemonGo.com
  • PokemonGoCatchIt.com

Pokemon Go's popularity is rapidly increasing. I can see why it will be very appealing to domainers to get their hands on unique names. Anything which has the word 'poke' on them may become so popular because they can be developed to Pokemon-related websites and rise in value even more.
