Short question about selling.

Is it legal to e-mail an offer to sell a domain name to several people that might be interested in buying. Or, do you have to wait for them to find the domain name and contact you first?

Example: is for sale at $xxx or best offer. Please visit “listing site” to make an offer.

I was contacted about a domain recently. Felt like a buyer. Back and forth including sharing some stats. Then he disappeared. Your article inspired a quick Trademark search. Hard for me to imagine a business model that files a UDRP as a workaround a domain purchase, but I guess they’re out there. Thanks for the heads up.
PS Here’s a link to the trademark search page.
