Super Bowl domains: You know you should not do it!

ZFBot

Super Bowl” is a registered trademark of the National Football League, going back to 1966.

Naturally, the NFL owns SuperBowl.com – but what about those that think it’s ok to register domains abusing this famous trademark?

Apparently, there are at least 2,968 domain names – including those operated by the NFL – that contain the term “superbowl“, according to top domain tool, ZFBot!

With a lucrative market for sports paraphernalia, the trademark violators have a financial motive, no doubt.

Surprisingly, we found no “Super Bowl” domains listed on Flippa.com, which is a good thing for a change. However, some fool there is selling MyNewEnglandPatriots.com
Also on Flippa, the auction for 2012superbowl.org ended with the domain being unsold.

Kids, don’t do it!

    There are actually exactly 6,000 domains that contain “Superbowl” (not just starting/ending with)

    Queries like that run fairly quickly directly on my server but cause browsers to time out. Working on it though… 😉
