In case you are looking for a new domain name, you may want to think twice about using something with the word 'eBay' in there. Based on a recent court decision in the Ninth Circuit -$file/0556794.pdf?openelement - depending on the facts, you may be sought out by eBay to give up the domain, which could disrupt your business. It may be best to add a '-' in between your word that ends in 'e' and the word 'bay', just to avoid some confusion. Although that may not protect you 100%, it may make a better argument.
