    I decided to get into the gambling niche dealing with poker. I hear its a very difficult niche to get into but its what I'm interested in so why not. So i just registered a domain callled absolutepoker.net. Then the day after, I found out that there is a major poker site that is called absolutepoker.eu. So my question is... Am I going to get copyright Issues in the future for using the "absolute poker" name? Or is there a way to get around this. Any suggestions are highly appreciated..

    Wow, how did you manage to get that domain? Be careful with poker, especially when dealing with the US. The new laws and everything have shut down some of the major poker sites as you may know.

    Full tilt, pokerstars, and another big one. All shut down for money laundering and fraud. Online gambling the the US is now illegal.

    You say Poker is something you're interested in but you didn't know all of this happened and you hadn't heard of absolute poker?

    I've no idea how you managed to get that domain but I'd be very careful with it.
