Hello Team,

Just wondering if Magento have changed the rules on using magento in the URL to sell a product as it appears that there are companies cropping up that are doing this

as an example have a look at magentoeparcel.com

Can we buy urls with magento in them now and Magento have not updated the licensing section as I found this

Can I use the Magento trademark in one of my domain names or URLs?
No. You may not use the Magento trademark or any other mark associated with the Magento offering from our company in your domain name or URL. (For example, “www.magentohosting.com” is not allowed). See more on this topic below.

• Domain names - You may not use an identical or virtually identical Magento trademark as a second level domain name. For example, “iMagento.com” and “Magentomail.com” are not acceptable.

Thanks for your advice

You shouldnt use Magento in your domain, it is copyright violation!

not only Magento but for any other trademarks, you will register the domain and maybe install de site but owner of the brand will put you offline if he want it.
