イーバンク Translation help please

イーバンク, does it mean eBank?

Overture Japan
230513 イーバンク
53708 イーバンク 銀行

What would be the value of イーバンク.com and net?
Thanks

Re: イーバンク Translation help please

I posted in the other thread, but I'll repeat it. eBank appears to be a corporation in Japan rather than a generic term. Check out the first search result.

Sorry, no value.

Re: イーバンク Translation help please

Yes it's eBank I can't say it's not a generic term though.
There's a couple of ways you might see it written though.
From the non Japanese point of view eBank eBanking is a generic internet term.

Re: イーバンク Translation help please

I think it's a grey area - if they decide to pursue it with money, they can win the domain. So, it's better to keep a lower profile and try to earn from PPC while it is still possible.

Re: イーバンク Translation help please

Transliterations of Generic Terms are almost invariably Trademarks. Obviously translations are not.

Re: イーバンク Translation help please

It seems to exactly match the name of this company: http://www.ebank.co.jp/ - not the domain name, but the actual name. http://www.ebank.co.jp/aboutus/profile/index.html

As such, it's probably not "generic" in Japan.

There is a Japanese trademark for "ebank" - not sure how to find trademark data on Japanese language keywords but I'll keep looking...
http://www.ipdl.ncipi.go.jp/homepg_e.ipdl

As mentioned above, I've now found the Japanese language trademark search:
http://www1.ipdl.ncipi.go.jp/syutsugan/TM_SEARCH_A.cgi

Enter the keyword in the top box in the right-hand column (if it's a single word like イーバンク) and then hit the left-hand of the 2 buttons immediately below the form. That will give you the trademark count (in this example 2) Then hit the left-hand button of the 2 displayed next to the count (above the form, below the instructions) to see the individual marks.

And yes, イーバンク does have trademarks in both Romaji and Katakana, so I'd have to say $0 and a headache...

Re: イーバンク Translation help please

Thanks guys. Very informative.

I will not use the domain for Japanese banking business then and will not reg the .jp version. I will also not sell the domain . Perhaps I should brand it into a power factory (e bank) website.

Thanks again.

Re: イーバンク Translation help please

Hi Edwin,
Could you tell me if the TM belongs to イーバンク 銀行 (ebank. co .jp)? Is it a banking related TM?

BTW, someone in Japan has just regged イーバンク.jp.
