I received this e-mail from an web outfit in China:
We are a Network Service Company which is the domain
name registration center in Shanghai, China.
On Sep 29, 2014, we received an application from Huaya Holdings Ltd requested "thejoekorner" as their internet keyword and China (CN) domain names. But after checking it, we find this name conflict with your company name or trademark. In order to deal with this matter better, it's necessary to send email to you and confirm whether this company is your distributor or business partner in China?
I have checked with Earthlink, my domain host, and they assured me that my joekorner.com domain cannot be taken as long as I keep the registration current. Right now, it's good through 2017.
If you do a web search and find listings for Huaya Holdings Ltd or any web site name using thejoekorner other than thejoekorner.com, it is NOT from me.
