For example someone started softelectronics.com and a month later another person started verysoftelectronics.net then is it possible for former person to go legally against verysoftelectronics.net ?

I don't think so, these are different domain names, even in normal business registration people do have similar business names. "Very soft" is different from "soft" also .com and .net. All you need do is to work hard to kill the name through aggressive marketing.

if they are phishing site, and use your brand visuals, logo, etc. you can report it to their registrar.

Yeah, provided your logo and trade mark is not used and the business name differs there is nothing any one can do about that. Survival of competitors in business is what makes your brand name last in the market.

As long as the site with the same name but different domain doesn't tyr to impersonate you or doing something harmful to you, I don't think you can do much about it.

So it is hard. Firstly, do you have a copyright/trademark on the name? If not, I don't see there is anything you can do.

And then, even if you do, international law is complex - if the name is registered in a different country you might have problems.
Years ago I started a website with the name PAYPAL in the domain name. I got lots of threating emails from Paypal and decided to close the site - but I noticed the site paypalsucks.com remained online - if paypal cannot take down this site then that is clear proof that it is possible to register a domain with someone elses name in it and there is nothing you can do about it.

Yeah, it is possible that paypalsucks.com might also be facing the same challenge you faced from PayPal but for the fact the have their legal backing they may see the threats as light as air. Once it is internet I doubt if there are are duplication of domain name or business name, they don't allow their could be similarities though.

ha ha good example of paypalsucks. the example i gave adding "very" was not quite appropriate and i think softelectronics can do nothing about it. the word "very" honestly not attacking softelectronics but other domain examples might end up fight in the court!

The word "very" is a threat to softelectronic.com despite the case might be dead on arrival case in court. Honestly people will prefer to patronize very soft than soft electronic.

the case might be dead on arrival case in court.

Here is the answer to this question and so many others as well. Why do owners of HYIPS get away with it? Why do people get away with copyright infringement? Why are there so many illegal activites in the net?

Simply, people are not going to go to court. Here we have a small website owner. Do you think he/she has the resources for international litigation ? Generally speaking the courts work against us and leave us with nothing to do…

That's a justification to your point, I can assure you that if the owner of soft electronic.com is aware of verysoftelectronic.com he won't fight rather work on how e can beat him or her in the market.

I guess you can still sue them for copyright claims and report them, try contacting them first and try to solve it in a friendly way, because that could be a mistake and not done on purpose, if they refuse to cooperate then let the law does its job .

@RaOne excellent comment bro. that is a nice solution indeed in case they are not intentionally abusing someone's business. friendly offer is a good strategy.

If they are not harming your brand, I don't think it should be much of a problem to you. Especially if they are trying to impersonate your brand please sue them if you can

yes friend. If that is not going against a business why bother to take legal action that involves time and effort and also money probably. So you are right absolutely.

Definitely,court cases takes time and money so no need wasting productive time you would have invested in your business or brand on a case that might not be really necessary.

Depending on business harm a company can be charged with a penalty blow so everything need to be considered carefully. A domain name too which we dont care at purchase time.
