I just noticed this site hubpages.in. which is giving same service as hubpages. publisher can write articles and earn money.
Is it legal to use same name as hubpages? I think HP should take action against such sites and also domain like .in ,.asia,.org should be reserved by HP so that people should not misuse original name.
share your thoughts hubbers!
Domain names are not protected, they are first-come, first served. Trademarks could be an issue, but trademarks are nation-specific, meaning that HubPages would need to have its brand trademark registered in India to take legal action. In this case, that would be difficult to achieve, since a competing site is already established, and HubPages is not doing any business in that country.
I agreed with you Website examiner but I am afraid tomorrow i may seen 10 others site with same name as hubpages that may hurt original brand.
Hubpages.in has been around a long time, I don't think it benefits a lot from using the name and HP could do something but probably don't think it is worth their time
