I understand better what your saying, and realized that I didn't explain that I am selling a conceptual idea as well as domain name. Just as "www.paypaldev.org" is a independant forum for developers, "www.euroPayPal.com" could be an extention or use of a merchant PayPal account to offer new or additional services to the European market.
In my first post I asked, "What do you think?" and you replied with some things that made me realize that I didn't define the possible use of the domain name along with what PayPal would consider "fair use".
I will have to add it. Thanks for clearing this up.

1) it looks like cybersquatting, but you say no... ok
2) half of european countries don't speak english
3) 100% of european countries don't use .com as a page and depends on individual laws
example, spain would be paypal.es, england .uk and so on
as for what benefits would an european achieve from using europaypal.com that couldn't achieve from using the .uk, .es or even paypaldev.org I can't see at all
... and i am european

1- no comment
2- yes, but neither "euro" or "paypal" are english words. Euro is the european currency, and "paypal" is a Trademark, like "General Electric" which sold under the same Trademark in Europe. If Paypal implements european languages, europaypal.com could become a good domain.
3- wrong! most sites in France and Italy use .com because of unfriendly domain policies. .com is used for many european businesses as well, because using a national tld would identify too much the company with one country, but we have a common market, remember?
