    Are you in Canada? I only ask because you have to be Canadian to buy a .ca domain. Trust me--I've tried.

    For the most part yes, but I believe foreigners can register a .ca if they are protecting a Trademark.

    So if I own www.domain.com, dyou think I can register www.domain.ca ?

    Or does it have to be a registered trademark?

    Depends on common law trademark law acceptance in CA, but I'm pretty sure that they follow the USPTO's understanding that domain.com is NOT a source identifier ( a crucial ingredient of a TM) but domain if used in common law or registered may be allowed, this I'll have to look into.

    (eg. Parasiteware(TM) [not USPTO registered] acts as a source identifier for what it is so parasiteware.ca should be able to be registered)

    I have used domainsatcost.ca

    I am Canadian.

    This brings up another thought. Is there anything preventing a canadian selling their .ca domain to a foreigner?

    According to that list you can have a .ca domain if you're the Queen.

    IMO the .us rules are exactly right for a national domain, but this is plain daft.

    Trade-mark registered in Canada (by non-Canadian owner)


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Definition: A Person which does not fall under any other registrant type, but which is the owner of a trade-mark which is the subject of a registration under the Trade-marks Act (Canada) R.S.C. 1985, c.T-13 as amended from time to time, but in this case such permission is limited to a request to register a .ca domain name consisting of or including the exact word component of that registered trade-mark.
    This Registrant Type is only intended for Registrants which do not meet the requirements associated with any other registrant type but which have a trade-mark registered in Canada. (Trade-marks subject of trade-mark applications and trade-marks registered in other jurisdictions, such as the United States, do not qualify.)

    The domain name to be registered must include the trade-mark. (eg. If the trade-mark is AVEA this type of registrant can register avea.ca or aveaisus.ca but not xyz.ca).

    Requirements: The Registrant's name must be the complete legal name of the trade-mark owner (not the trade-mark agent) holding the domain name registration without any abbreviations. (A common abbreviation may follow the complete name in parentheses.) The applicant must also insert the Canadian registration number of the trade-mark following the Registrant name.

    Valid Examples of Registrant Names for this Type:

    Arcuros SPA - TMA1762466
    Invalid Examples of Registrant Names for this Type:
    Arcuros SPA
