Sorry, it's just I've answered the question "What are trademarks and copyrights" over and over on this topic already. If something is trademarked, that means you came up with it, and you own it. I came up with and own all of my company's content, games, etc. So, therefore, everything is trademarked.
If you believe in this, your company isn't going to go far.
In case you guys don't know, law says that if you steal content that someone else owns, you can be fined up to $150,000.
That's an incredibly loose definition of the law in reference to stealing. What is "content"? If your image is blue, and I change it to red, is it now mine? If your game is called Bob, and I rename it Bill, is it now mine?
Don't just shove TM next to everything and assume your products are safe.
WHY? Is $10 for a proper domain really such a hassle? Aside from saving a few dollars, there is no logical reason to use a .TK, all it does is demonstrate you're not serious about your website, and that I (as your potential viewer!) should not take you seriously.
For me, I don't put any money into anything I make with GM; which is what my site is for. So, similarly, I don't put any money into the site. It's there for my interest, and mine alone.
However, for a commercial company, .tk definitely isn't recommended.
.Tk is the same as .com, the only difference is that it's free. I've seen many other indie game companies use free domains.
.tk has a tendency to be used by scam websites, so it's reasonable why some would be worried about visiting.
Btw... how do you change the .tk favicon?
Just google favicons. I really hope you don't use a website builder...
You know Visceral Games, makers of Dead Space? Their stuff is trademarked, too.
Ironic that I finished Dead Space 2 a couple of days ago...
