domain guy says
very good Jamie! bringcomphyback uses both the hashtag and .com domain name When you get into litigation over a domain name the point is raised by the opposite side you registered the domain name just days after the public announcement was made. And when you use the domain name legitimately there is nothing a $700.00 an hour legal attorney can do.
