Is having the words 'starwars' in my website name infringe on any trademark or copyright laws?

More details to this question:
My site has the words 'starwars' in it which is a trademarked title. I was wondering if it was legal to have those words, if so, is it legal for me to sell unbranded products/branded products under that domain?

The STARWARS trademark is owned by Disney for motion pictures and various promotional merchandise.  Whether your use of STARWARS on your website is an infringement depends on how you use it and with what goods services.  It also would depend on whether you use the same font as in the Desney trademark.

Intellectual Property
The legal system recognizes the rights of people and companies that invent and create unique works, granting them ownership of those tangible and intangible assets through a number of intellectual property laws. Intellection property, or IP, includes patents, trademarks, copyright, trade dress and trade secrets. Intellectual property attorneys work with businesses and individuals (including inventors, writers, composers, artists and designers) to help protect these intellectual assets. IP lawyers and law firms can assist with taking initial steps to protect assets, while also working with clients to license items and to protect assets that are plagiarized, infringed and/or misappropriated.
