    If i own the service mark "joes fast plumbing", (exactly as i have it written here) and i have a live website "joesfastplumbing.com" - is someone infringing upon my service mark if they buy the domain name joesfastplumbing.net & have it in use/ live on the internet?

    ***And they are NOT using my service mark on any of their website pages - only as the domain name in the url bar.

    So you go to joesfastplumbing.net and there is no 'joes fast plumbing' anywhere on the site, just in the url bar, and they have a plumbing website at this address.

    In other words, does my service mark (which does NOT have any url extension) protect me from others using the same domain name (joesfastplumbing) live on the internet, but with a different ending/ extension (ie: joesfastplumbing.net)?

    many thanks
