Brokering the sale of a domain poses several legal issues. Sellers must understand the legitimacy of their registration and use of the domain before attempting to sell. Domain name sellers must also know what they can say and cannot say when trying to sell the domains. Ultimately, domain name sellers should get a release when selling the domain so as to avoid any future claims of cybersquatting or trademark infringement.

Trademark owners should also be able to discern between a legitimate offer to sell and one that could be characterized as a bad faith attempt to capitalize off of the trademark owner's goodwill. Trademark owners may have other ways to acquire the domain without having to purchase it. A domain name broker may be able to provide some of these answers, but an attorney with domain name brokerage experience would be the perfect fit.
