What is Copyright material?
Copyright is an important and very difficult issue and problem, especially in our digital age. Even working out what actually infringes copyright is fraught with problems. These are problems for everyone who shares material online, and certainly for the Classics Library, which shares resources written by many hundreds of teachers. The Classics Library is a one-man show, turning five in March, and has been successful, but it shouldn’t be successful at the cost of other people’s livelihood and efforts, however much it seeks to help the lives and save the efforts of teachers. It’s impossible for me to make checks on every uploaded resource to ensure that there is definitively no copyright infringement. I can do my best in the time I have with the very best of intentions and awareness, and I can trust all members, but it’s down to me to do all I can and to help all members understand how to think about resources they upload. Many of you will know that I have turned away your resources because of my fear that they might infringe copyright, and I have tried my best to understand copyright and do the right thing, morally and legally. I can’t afford legal action against me, and the site was born and lives on a moral, generous, and kind basis. On Friday I was likened to a shoplifter who divvies out his plunder to others in the street. I try to support all Classics, from the classroom teacher to the higher education institution and the publishing bodies which give us vital material.

Use of trade/sevice marks
Is protected by copyright law, except under "fair use" which includes commentary, parody, news reporting, research and educational purposes.
i don't think registering a domain including a copyrighted mark "bestbuy" would be justified under fair use if all you're doing is airing dirty laundry. depending on the content of your site, it may classify as parody. be careful, however. if you stat...ite that is factually incorrect that causes confusion to their customers or damages their reputation, best buy will have every right to sue you for defamation.
however, i agree with the previous poster. doing this would be childish. if you have a complaint about bestbuy due to an incident in which you believe you were treated poorly or unfairly, address these concerns directly to best buy.

Damn, we never get dick for our castoffs
"The New York Post is reporting that Ramsey
could become a Jet within days. The Jets and Redskins
have been discussing a trade, and word is New York
will send Washington a fifth-round pick in April's
draft as well as a possible conditional pick in 2007.
After initially seeking a second-round pick for
Ramsey, the Redskins have lowered their demamds.
Ramsey, a first-round pick in 2002, has become the odd
man out in Washington. Mark Brunell wrestled the
starting job from Ramsey early last season and Jason
Campbell is being groomed to eventually take over."
