Subdomain Names and Whois Privacy?

Hi Mark,

I have a couple of questions on domains/subdomains.

1. Choosing subdomain names.
If the subdomain name is the same as a registered top level domain name,
is that illegal, or a trademark infringement of some kind?

2. When registering a domain name, does Google penalize your website a lot
if you use a WhoIs privacy service?

I do not think you are penalized for domain privacy. That seems far reached for me.
