I'm concluding that I don't want the risks of losing my domain name (and all the traffic to it). So, is FREE Wordpress.com a way around it - i.e. http://(trademarked).wordpress.com? Or, would Wordpress receive the C&D and take my site down without notice?
If I'm off base on this, how do you treat AWESOME search terms that contain trademarked words, and that you ideally want as some part of your main URL/home page?
