This page contains the User Agreement (“Agreement”) between you and BrokerComplaints.com (“BrokerComplaints Sites”), the publisher of this Broker Complaints Web site (the “Site”). The term “Site” as it is used in this Agreement includes any associated online and mobile websites, applications and digital tools that provide an authorized link to this Agreement (“Mobile Services”).

In this Agreement, “you” and “your” refer to each user of the Site.

This Agreement sets forth the terms and conditions for your use of the Site.  By using the Site, you are agreeing to these terms and conditions.  Please read them carefully.


It is simply not reasonable to conclude that someone viewing this website would be confused as to the source, sponsorship, affiliation, or endorsement of this site. ACPA cannot simply be used as a weapon to censor consumer discourse concerning (dis)satisfaction with investment brokers and firms. Investors’ feedback on the Internet, including griping, ratings, and reputations, has empowered other investors with information enabling them to make a more informed investment. Ref: Cleary Building Corp, V. David A. Dame, Inc., Civil Action No. 09-cv-01578-CMA-MEH. (DCo Dec. 1, 2009).

The reason why we specifically select the domain name is to make this site more easily found by potential investors who are interested in the aforesaid investor or his/her firm.

In case you are planning to initiate an ACPA or a UDRP proceeding, here are some facts for your consideration –

  • we have no intention of selling, renting or profiting from this domain name,
  • there is no scope for any monetization or affiliation on this website,
  • there is no scope for any actual confusion as for the purpose of this website,
  • appropriate disclaimers and alerts make our intentions abundantly clear.

Basically, there is no bad faith intent of profiting from this domain and website, and the sole purpose is to establish a platform to enable investors to collaborate and communicate with each other and share resources and information.

Courts have said that using a company’s trademark to direct criticism to that company is not the same as using the trademark with a bad faith intent to profit under the Anti-Cyberquatting Protection Act. Offering criticism and review is actually in line with the ACPA’s consumer protection …
