  • Domains containing the word, 'vBulletin'?


    I'm just wondering what is acceptable to Jelsoft in terms of domains containing the word, 'vBulletin'?

    I ask because over at AdminFusion, I was discussing my domain, Some think it's okay, some think I'm not safe from a C&D from Jelsoft.

    I want to create a fansite revolving around vBulletin, and I don't see the problem with having 'vBulletin' in my domain because of other websites that has 'vBulletin' in their domains - such as,,, not to mention others. My website is not going to be used to make Jelsoft or vBulletin look bad in any way, shape or form. It's just going to be a discussion forum with an auction house section, tutorials (including video tutorials, skinning tutorials etc) and other ideas like that.

    So where do I stand? Would I be in a better position if I were to place a disclaimer similar to this one on the website?

    'vBulletin' is trademarked and you are not allowed o use i in a domain name. Some sites were grandfathered in because they were using this before the trademark was issued.
