Trademark issues on eBay related domain names?

I have this great domain name ebayreview.com (for example)
Do you know if I will get into trouble to use this domain and promote Clickbank products related to ebay?

It will be a waste if I don't use this domain. At the same time I don't want to build this site but cannot sell any eBay related affiliate products. Or eBay will sue me for using their name?

Any view? What should I do with this domain?

It's not an easy call Jimtsa. I mean, they can go after you if they really want to. But they have more problems in their business and will not even give you the time. If they can sue you for $100M and you can pay that amount then Id say they will definitely go after you.

If you search for something on google there are so many affiliate sites that are using company names or even brand names in their domain names. At the end of the day it is your call to not renew the domain or use it and build a whole site with it.

Ebay is a registered trademark and eventually you will get into trouble if they will find out. Its not worth the try. Use your effort, time and resources on something else.
