I know Caitlin Clark has trademarked her name but her first name is not unique like say Beyonce. Can you therefore use the name ACaitlin.com?

I know Caitlin Clark has trademarked her name but her first name is not unique like say Beyonce where if anyone uses that name as part of a domain name, say aBeyonce.com it is considered a trademark infringement. Caitlin is not a unique first name however as Caitlin Clark is not the only woman to have Caitlin as a first name, so I would assume if you just use the first name Caitlin as part of a domain name without a sports association that is not a trademark violation. Am I right?

As such, I registered the name aCaitlin.com & I'm doing nothing with it for the time being until I find out that is not a trademark violation. aCaitlin.com could be used as a forwarding domain to a non sports related website I assume. What do you think?

Hi

would you have used her name, if she wasn't popular sports figure?

as is, you basically regged the name to capitalize on her fame, otherwise you could use any domain to serve your intent mentioned above.

imo...

Irrelevant comment unfortunately that is not answering my question. The sole purpose for meing registering domain names is to resell them like everyone on this Forum.
