Can I add an extra "r" to the end of a word or is it trademarked? For example if I were to register a real word with an "r" like could I get into trouble and get an email from Fiverr saying Hey we have the rights to the double r or is it ok?

    While I am not an attorney, I'm fairly certain you can use a double r in that setting. If you used some direct variation of a trademarked name that would be an issue. In your example, if hiker is trademarked, adding an extra r wouldn't prevent them from coming after you for trademark infringement.

    In this case especially, I'd say you're fine. Without getting bogged down in a discussion of international law, it looks like Fiverr is based in Israel and yours will be a URL and business based in the UK, yes? Trademark protections most likely do not cross borders...

    Like ron said, you won't get any issues if you are using a trademark name. If it is not means, you can use it without any problem. Few years ago, i used some variant name FedEx and within no time, their attorney sent an email to block it.
