    Yeah, its called copyright. Most respectable companies would not associate themselves with sites that try feed off of established brands.

    LMAO, did you really think stealing a business name would be ok, especially considering your using Paypal as a checkout.

    Never has and never will.

    Trust me, Paypal is VERY strict when it comes to domain name infringements.

    /\ True. Most companies are a bit protective of their company name.

      You have can prove you have a legit use for it, they
      can't touch you. Nobody can just take your domain unless
      you are in the US and doing something illegal.

      Paypalsucks is a common domain.
      screw-paypal is another.

      Of course they make it known that they are using those domains
      for something other than a paypal ripoff site.

    I wouldn't use it. I'd be afraid of spending time building the site and then get a cease and desist letter from an attorney for paypal.

    Is it worth it?

    Not in my opinion.

    If you want to blog about paypal, how to use it, etc. find another domain name. You can get your site or blog ranked by writing relevant content.

    Forgot about this domain, you probably violate some copyright, so maybe it will be better to mvoe on other website/domain.
