    Be careful with your domains and trademarks
    I have had a rash of applications for our affiliate programs recently that had domains that were problematic because of improper use of trademarked terms like team names, player names or sports league names.

    I'm not giving legal advice on behalf of my company, or anyone else, but if you're thinking about registering a domain that uses a trademarked company or product name (or in our case a team, player name or league, or even special event like World Cup or Super Bowl) for affiliate marketing purposes, you should check this video out for some common sense advice.

    If you have any questions, you should check with an attorney with experience in trademark law.
