    As you may be aware when you purchase the templates you receive all content in html. An example of the type of site I want to use


    I would be very grateful if anybody could assist

    This was a older template monster theme i think

    Lots of the older real estate themes once purchased for the perium price, are removed.

    Its always worth checking tm as they always have the best designs and themes to use for your bussiness.

    Also check out the other sections, like business themes and not just real estaste, some of the best designs to use for apps like OR are the really clean simple designs
    I think i have forgotten more then i have learned over the past few years!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the help awd

    I think its not looking good for me tho on this domain name dispute issue, first thing its a huge usa copration, taking me to a usa dispute process.

    I contacted them at adrforum.com, told them this was a international issue, relating to a usa company and me a uk company, there response was '' now they have applied to go threw this process, even tho the adrforum states clearly on there website ' a place for usa business/ trade mark disputes etr'' they say i have to go hrew the process.

    This whole issue of Williams- Sonoma, Inc. The owners of the pottery barn, the pottery barn, pbkids, pbteens trade marks in the usa has got me really wound up big time

    First they say i registered to domain in 2006 at which time they say they contacted me and sent a seist and desist letter to tell me to stop using the website.


    This is rather strange as i purchased the domain in 2001, and set up the site in 2002, the a complete redesign again in 2004 and just recently at christmas


    At this time i have be filed with a compliant and i need to respond back to it in 14 days - if i do not respond, the forum will look at the false information provided and take it all as fact.


    I have some really big problems here

    They need to prove three issues to 'STEAL MY DOMAIN NAME'

    1. clear trademark issue
    2. i have no interests in the domain
    3. Use of bad faith in the domain

    All i need to do is prove my poiints

    1. i have interests in the business
    2. i can prove my interests etc

    The internet archive shows my site on my servers in 2003, only the default plesk holding page was indexed, same again in late 2004, then in 2004 it shows my site running with mambo

    Me and my freiends have been dealing in splecialist english pottery for nearly 25 - using the name potter barn, potterybarn collectables etc, my friends father used to take us around car boots, coollecters fairs etc, and teached us alot, over the years i have bought abd sold lots of pottery items, mainly cornish ware.
    I have now set up my own limited uk company and applied for uk patents for both my business name and doamin


    The thing that really upsets me about this is the fact WSI have twisted information, made up false information and slandered me as a bad charcter ' lurking on the internet - trying to lure customers from google in my eveil lair'


    Heres some things they describe me as

    1. Because i'm english and should have known about a usa mark, they say just because a usa mark is in place, i must no about it and therefore registered the domain in order to steal the good wiill, a clear showing of bad faith

    1. answer - i never even new anything about this comapny until they contacted me in 2006 trying o purchase the website/business/ my interets

    2. I tryed selling the domain to they for more than $10,000

    2. answer I explained my business, my stock level, the work i had done on the website etc, and they wanted me to sign a document saying i whould hand over all my interests and never use the term pottery barn in any business/ website again
    They offered $250 - i explained my interests where worth at least Ł10,000 - after which time negoations broke down - I CLEARLY STATED TO TEHEM - NEVER CONTACT ME AGAIN - THIS DOMAIN IS NOT GOING TO BE FOR SALE

    3. they say the use of the open directory project on my website in a links directory is bad faith

    3. i don't really understand how they fiqured this out, but i have imported the whole odp directory, 2.5 million links in 16667 cats - they convinatinly browsed to the adult section, then the picture rating section and printed out these to try and prove bad faith in some manner

    i don't understand how using the odp project is bad in anyway, they need to prove three points and have used very questionable methods in order to meet this

    I just can not belive how much time i have wasted on this issue so far, and i have not even written my response which is probably a couple of days work.

    I did write to the adrforum outlining that information provided to them is incorrect and mainly points are based on assumptsion, at first they rejected there complaint, but after some revisions, theyt resubmitted it and it is now in process

    I think WSi have used this domain dispute process in order to get this valuable asset from me, they clearlry state they have spent hunderds of thousands of dollars on internet markerting etc, in se's

    I do not think ther wher happy to have someone else in control of a domain with the same gTLD as them - I stated to them i'm not selling - so they only way they can get it is buy using the domain dispute process - it seems over the years they have used this same method to get many similar domians handed over to them

    In all cases no one has done anything with there sites/ they clearly have no intersts and each owener never responseds - and guess what - they seem to have won them all

    Not with me tho i will fight to the death on this issue - i have the force behind me being on the side on good, and they have the power of the dark side, everyone no even tho the dark side might be more powerfull and have more assets to engaguage in a battle, thegood side of the force will always win threw in the end

    If all else fails and they do infact steal my domain from me i inteend to go to the usa on a extened holiday and camp outside there flagship store with a big sign saying i have been harrased, hounded and beaten to near death by a large usa corp
    I think i have forgotten more then i have learned over the past few years!!!!!!!!

    I don't know that it will do anything.. but I forwarded a quick message to Williams Sonoma expressing my dissapointment in their actions. Have they not learned from the eToy.com incident? It should additionally console you to go to www.nissan.com - This individual has been holding off Nissan Motor Corporation for well over a decade now. He should be applauded and perhaps you could get some tips from him. He operates an electronics store under his family name "nissan" and has been in business for quite some time. These corporations are terrible bullies.. I applaud you and wish you the best.

    I'm sorry to bear bad news but the ADRFORUM the popele who decide the issues of domain name disputes have looked at WSI complaint looked at my response and decided to give the domain to the massive usa comapny.

    I have less than 3-4 days from this point to take legal actions against them in the uk courts of law

    The problem i have tho is i have lost all faith in this issue

    Maybe i am wrong - maybe because i owned the domain and new nothing about them WSI (potterybarn usa) for over 6 years and now they have a problem with me there must be a major problem

    I can''y afford to waste lots of time on this issue and reviewing this asset against other assets i have, i cann't really afford to waste lots more time on this issue - therefore i'm maybe just going to let it gone and be ERASED from the internet

    The ADRFORM clearly stated i have no right no interests and have been using the domain name in bad faith

    They do not acknowledge my site was ever around before 2006 november, they say that because i entered into neogation for the domain with never came to anything, this is clear bad faith

    they say that because one company in one region owns a trademark , everyone in every region around the world must no about it - and therefore this is another reason they use to transfer my domain away from me

    This hole thing is rather strange , on reviewing other cases similar to mine, they always publish the full information from both parties, if you look at the decision, none of my resopnse which was 5 times bigger than theres was posted for referance, i clearly thought this information is like a open source archivce where otheres in the future could view this stuff , make there own descision and maybe take futher actions, but no nothing seems to have been archicved


    Its a shame really, i could simply take them to a small claims court over the ownership, right to use and interestests in the domain name <potterybarn.org> but i similpy do not have the time or money to cover any legal expensices this could incurr, WSI on the other hand can spend thousands of dollars on this issue

    maybe its best to just let it go and move onto other projects - its a shame tho as they deleted and never accpected that my Oscommerce website, online pottery collecters forum and huge link directory never amounted to a boni fided use of a domain name


    I would suggest to anyone that ever owns lots of domains to NEVER EVER enter neogations yourself directy with third parties over the sale of it or other related items - always use a third party, you friend or lawyer to neogatoe on your behalf

    Never let your domains sit there doing nothing for long periods of time, it also seems that if you site is down, be switched server or suchlike , you could also be in problems

    I have learned alot here, but this information is so complex, learning it in like 3-4 days is just not possable - UNLESS YOUR SOME BIG COMPANY of course


    I just checked the domain and it seems to have been transfered away from me
    I think i have forgotten more then i have learned over the past few years!!!!!!!!

    This is really f... up. This is very bothersome for small to medium enterprises (SMEs). You should sue them from the UK and ask for a billion dollars, that's what the big corporations understand. Sometimes very good lawyers take up these kinds of cases for free as they know they will win (even if they know they probably won't, they know that the companies are willing to settle for millions of dollars rather than going forward with the case) and they can make a bundle when they win as they take a large percentage of the earnings. (It is exactly the same reason why people hate lawyers - people perceive them as sharks.) Try checking out some law site forums and see how this can proceed and see if lawyers may be interested in representing you in return for a percentage of the settlement. You may not need to spend any money if a lawyer smells money. I don't think you should give up yet. If this were to happen to me, I would see this as a way to make millions of dollars. You know whom I would call a very good lawyer? Someone who would also sue ADRForum for neglicence.
