Online store named similar to a popular movie?
For example... If the movie is called: Finding Nemo.... Could I legally name an online web store that sells high end goods: Finding Supremo? What if I use the same/similar font style, but maybe in different colors VS using a completely new style/font...? Thanks for your help.
Will we get sued by another website if our idea is similar
My partner and I are starting a website that does something similar to what another website does but caters to a different niche and different clientele. However, our domain name is similar. They do a website AND a publication, we are only focusing on the website. We aren't using anything from their site. What grounds would they have to take action against us? Could they take action against us?

Ip question , who is right in this case and why ?
Company A and Company B entered into a license agreement, having the following provision. Company A hereby covenants not to sue Company B for infringement based upon any act by Company B of manufacture, use, sale, offer for sale, or import of the Licensed Product that occurs after the effective date of this Agreement. The covenants will apply only to patents that claim such Licensed Product. The covenants will not apply to patents that claim an apparatus or method for making or using the Licensed Product. It turned out that Company A owned Patent X that claims such Licensed Product and Patent Y that claims a method for making such Licensed Product. Company A's position is that the covenants under the agreement applies only to Patent X that claims such Licensed Product. Company B's position is that the covenants applies to Patent Y as well. According to Company A's position, Company B cannot use the method as claimed in Patent Y without acquiring a further permission
