I participated in a number of Company naming contests on a crowdsourcing website.I had submitted a whole lot of entries for every project along with exact match domain names,which is hard to find..Recently i discovered a great number of my submissions have been registered for domains & trademarks conspicuously a week or so from my date of submission on the contest(too many instances to be a coincidence) and the registrant names of the domains have been hidden in most cased with privacy locks.When i contacted the creative support,to enquire if the buyer could've registered the names illegally without making a purchase,they said they couldn't find any direct connections between the buyer and the registered domain names while they also suggested it could be a case of domain "frontrunning" where the site on which i searched for domain name availability could've stolen the data & registered the domains by themselves only to sell it for a higher price.Some of this entries of mine have evolved as a brand over the months.
I would like to know if this would come under copyright infringement or trademark infringement?
Though i haven't registered the trademarks for these names,i believe it to be my original idea for which i can claim the copyright.
The only evidence i have is the screenshots for the names & domains i have submitted on the contest,along with date of submission & the date the domain was registered(Whois database).Is that sufficient to make a claim for infringement.If so how do i proceed?Please assist.
