I have been threatened with legal action the name of what I promote and sell on the internet infringes on a trademark of a large company. Since I know little about trademark laws, I disengaged my websie but retain ownership of the domain. I fear that I may lose a law suit. The company in question now wants ownership of my domain among other things. Is ownership of a domain an infringement if there is nothing back it up?

I am a small (one man) business owner with a company named DynaBytes Inc. The company is registered in New York. I was recently exploring the option of creating a web site for a domain name dynabytes.com (and other suffixes). I then realized that a California business owner have created a California company with that same name. Isn't this a violation of trading laws? Can i do anything about that? If so, how involved / costly is this process
