Legal → Discourse Keywords


#1

Suppose I wish to start a website PeterDiscourse.com; This is Just an an example, though.
The Discourse Software will be installed here. I hope in such case you do not have any issue with the installation in terms of copyright violation. Because the domain name contains “Discourse”.

Wordpress do not want any one to book a domain such as PeterWordpress.com.

I hope I am able to putup my question correctly.

You should similarly avoid it, but discourse.example.com is fine.


#3

Thanks, Jeff, but the domain name that makes meaning is/are rare to find these days because they are already booked. Some domain with the term discourse in theme made sense to me and I was willing to purchase it.

It is not recommended, but we do not have the legal team necessary to enforce it. I suggest looking at other TLDs as there are a ton now: .community and so on…

You don’t have to use “discourse”, you could use a synonym. Like PeterForum.com.
