Looking for a little help. We use a word for one of our services. lets say wine cellar. Someone has contacted us saying they own the rights (ie trademarked) and we should cease using it? Seems a stretch to me. I understand he has a trade mark with distinguishable font and design  but surely that is that different than than us using the same word.

The company I work for sells XYZ products online, via half a dozen or so URLs.  For some unknown reason, company XYZ doesn't want us to use their name in our URL even though nothing but products from XYZ are offered for sale, and the sole intent of having their name in the URL is to promote said products..

XYZ participates in no retail business.  All of our sites contain links to XYZ's home page, clearly indicating that we are NOT XYZ but rather a retailer of XYZ products.

Good day to all...

Is it possible to create a web site or page to allow users to connect into a community based blog that uses the NFL, NCAA, NBA, etc team logo?  Each user will have the ability to create a blog for a team of his or her choice (Atlanta Falcons, Edmonton Oilers, UCLA Bruins, etc..).  Are there any legal issues for utilizing the logo of the aforementioned leagues?  This site will not advertise or sell any merchandise.

Please respond...

Thanks...
