Unfortunately, a few bad apples have soured the practice of domain owners who legitimately park domain names they own in a parking program such as Namenative's. For that reason and more, Namenative takes IP infringement seriously and has instituted policies and procedures allowing rights holders to submit complaints to Namenative regarding the possible infringement by a domain owner participating in the Parking Program. With trademark infringement and click-fraud making front page news, users who participate in Namenative's Parking Program represent that they are the rightful owner of their domains and that no intellectual property rights would be infringed by their participation in Namenative's Parking Program. If you are not sure whether or not your domain names might possibly infringe a third party's IP rights, please search a trademark database such as the free service provided by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office or to search international trademarks try the free service provided by the World Intellectual Property Organization.
As mentioned above, click fraud has emerged as the number one obstacle to the success of domain traffic monetization models. Click fraud occurs when either computer programs or individuals are used to drive traffic to a website containing advertisement listings or directly to advertiser websites, such as Namenative's service, and who or which navigate to the domain and/or click on the listed ads displayed with no intention to purchase or inquire about the goods, services or companies being advertised. The threat posed by these practices is best illustrated by the number of advertisers who have greatly reduced the amount they spend on pay-per-click advertising. For these reasons, Namenative requires participants in our Parking Program to abide by the following set or rules and regulations.
PLEASE NOTE: COMMITTING ANY OF THE FOLLOWING PROHIBITED ACTIONS CONSTITUTES GROUNDS FOR IMMEDIATE TERMINATION FROM THE PARKING PROGRAM AND FORFEITURE OF ANY ACCUMULATED EARNINGS WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE. PLEASE READ AN
Namenative will pay the user a percentage of all revenues generated by the user's parked domain names.

The minimum payment amount is $20. Unissued earnings will be held until the month in which the total amount due exceeds the minimum payment amount for the chosen payment method or until the participation in the parking program has ended, in which case final payment will be made by method chosen by Namenative in its sole discretion. Un-issued earnings less than $20 or earnings undeliverable because of incomplete or inaccurate account data will expire after a period of 12 months and will be deleted.
