Walmart is trying to trademark a domain of mine

Amusing – a reporter from the Financial Times contacted me today – it seems that Walmart is trying to trademark the word “staycation” (i own staycation.com).

Excellent! They certainly can’t WIPO me – i’ve owned this domain since 2005 – and while they might still get the trademark, i think that would:

a) make purchasing the domain attractive to them
b) increase direct navigation traffic to staycation.com if they start using the word

Fun stuff – maybe i should ping their legal firm and see if Walmart wants to make me an offer…..
