A: You may want to speak with a knowledgeable trademark attorney directly, so they can collect some specific information and ask some important follow up questions. Then, they can assess whether using it could lead to trademark infringement (or something else unlawful). In the meantime, it's not a great idea to start using a trademark that's already being used by someone else.

A: Maybe, it depends on what kind of product or services the other mark covers and what you want to use it for. And your domain name can be stripped from you.

Consult with an attorney.

A: If there is already a registered trademark with the name "flickr," it may be difficult to register a trademark with a similar name such as "flick." The USPTO may consider the two names to be confusingly similar and reject the application. Additionally, using a domain name with a similar name to a trademarked name may also lead to legal issues, especially if it is used in a way that could cause confusion for consumers. It is recommended to consult with a trademark attorney to determine the best course of action.
