Hi Abhishek,


It needs to be looked into that are the product/service which is being sold under the same domain name are deceptively similar to the one which is being sold by the Co. and if that is the case, an action of passing off can be called for coupled with an injunction which would be granted against the Co. to restrain them further to use your domain name.

in addition to the above you shall have Trade Mark applied in your favour only then your claim will sustain before the court.
