Web domains and copyright protection
If I have registered a domain which is similar to a trademark. For example assume that I have registered flipkartindia.com or amazonindia.com .And I didn't use it yet. What all are the possible modes of complaints trademark owner can raise against me? They can contact ICANN for domain transfer. Is there any other punishments?

You won't be punished for registering those web domains.
Hi Sandeep thanks for your answer. But I get conflicting opinions from US attorneys.
Basically which law will be applicable in these cases? Indian Law/US Law or some International Law?
I see lot of cases in National Arbitration Forum http://www.adrforum.com/ where the judgement was to transferthe domains to copyright owner.
