The thought is that in the long run, it is probably a headache. I wouldn't advertise it, or list it for sale. At worst, I would park it.

I think IF you got it you should put up basic page (with no ads or anything that you could profit directly from) and then add some satirical content that doesn't hurt the trademark in itself but that might be regarded as a funny comment about it. This way there's no obvious signs that you use it in "bad faith" - ie try to profit from misleading people and getting a free ride on their trademark.

Then you sit back and wait to see if you get any offers. Don't expect to much though, and don't advertise it.

But first ponder if you think it's worth the hassle.

Re: About Trademark Question

If you profit from it and make them mad, ie the parked page show the trademark owners ads or google adsense shows their ad then you could have some headaches. I think most here feel its not worth the headache. I have been sitting on a name, generic but also a name for a product(trademarked). All the ads are for their product, I just don't want to deal with the headache, I have regged a few by mistake and either deleted them or will let them drop. jmo.
