    I'm not sure if this is the right place to get an accurate answer regarding your law-related question, unless of course, a Warrior, who's a lawyer by profession, would answer you.

    I don't know, but I'm curious, was that domain with a website or only the domain?

    If you don't get any answer here you could try asking at namepros, It's a forum specialized in domains

    And are you sure that letter is genuine?

    Is the domain copyrighted?

    If your domain have any copyright or trademark issue and if they sent you warning email previously then may be possible. but the perfect answer you can get from lawyer who know all this cyber crime low.

    That's a question probably only an attorney can answer. Kindsvater is one if he steps in to answer.

    As is often said in these threads, it bears repeating here. Call a lawyer.

    We could all tell you the person is bluffing by sending the letter and then in two months you'll find yourself in court being sued for damages for when you did indeed own the domain. Too many variables that quite frankly most of us can't account for when providing you with an accurate answer.

    You're going to fail. If you're afraid of failure then you do not belong in the Internet Marketing Business. Period.

    YES!

    You can get sued for almost anything, regardless of the merit of the lawsuit. At least that's how it works on this side of the pond. However, being sued is not the same as losing.

    There is always a chance that the person who sent you the letter is bluffing.

    The only way to know for sure is to contact a lawer and get their professional opinion.

    All the best,
    Michael

      I agree with Michael as this is the case in most countries and I don't see a reason for UK to be an exception. Winning or losing the lawsuit is one thing but anyone can get sued from time to time if the other party is willing to spend on an attorney.
