The Taco Bell DilemmaIn 2020, when I made my GrilledCheeseBurrito account, I was wondering if I could ever get a website called grilledcheeseburrito.com, because Taco Bell would have trademarked it. I made my account 12 days before Taco Bell released their Grilled Cheese Burrito. Just 12 days!
In 2023, I started to wonder if Taco Bell ever could trademark it. You aren't able to trademark things like grilled cheese or cheese burrito, but I didn't know if you could trademark grilled cheese burrito. It turns out, you can't! This got me excited. Nobody owned the site at the time, and it wasn't particularly expensive. On April 19, 2023, I was able to buy the site, and on the next day, the site was up and running.
