      20 Years! Cre8asiteforums 1998 - 2018   01/18/2018

      Cre8asiteforums In Its 20th Year In case you didn't know, Internet Marketing Ninjas released many of the online forums they had acquired, such as WebmasterWorld, SEOChat, several DevShed properties and these forums back to their founders. You will notice a new user interface for Cre8asiteforums, the software was upgraded, and it was moved to a new server.  Founder, Kim Krause Berg, who was retained as forums Admin when the forums were sold, is the hotel manager here, with the help of long-time member, "iamlost" as backup. Kim is shouldering the expenses of keeping the place going, so if you have any inclination towards making a donation or putting up a banner, she is most appreciative of your financial support.

Hi Gang,


Sorry about the very long absence. My wife died in mid 1955 and I have only just now felt like coming back into society and mixing again. I guess you could say the incident of having someone wanting to take over our European market has had a positive influence, since it has brought me back to the forums seeking help and advice.


What is the legal position of us allowing a buyer who is well established in the U.K. in the kneeling stools market setting up a mirror site with material from our main site? We would be selling to him in container loads for the U.K. and European markets since our principal sales are Australia, USA and Asia. He has already bought the domain kneelsit.co.uk.


Should we insist on him NOT using any of our website material as this could cause problems with a duplicate penalty? OR ?


Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know what the legal situation would be. You should ask an attorney.


A few comments about websites and domains....


1) I think that he should surrender kneelsit.co.uk to you if you hold trademark to it. That could be a condition of being your distributor. He could use the domain for promoting your product but ownership and control resides with you.


2) If his pages are hosted in the UK, my bet is that in a dupe content situation, his pages would not be filtered in Google UK but your pages might be. In the US your pages might have an advantage if hosted here and your domain was stronger than his.
