    Hello everyone and thanks for reading this.

    If one was to register a domain name globally, how does that interfere with, for example, a bands name that is already in use in Germany or any country around the world?

    If you purchase a domain name that is already used in a different way, perhaps it could be music, footwear or any other imaginable thing, if you were to use a similar name, do you risk losing it if a lawsuit were to arise?

    Please ask any questions if you don't get what I mean.

    Thanks.

    Sorry I should add that it's incredibly difficult to secure a decent domain name it seems without stepping on somebodies toes, but they might be some small outfit that hasn't registered the name and they might be some distance away geographically and in an entirely different field to you.
