Benefits of registering your trademark with the TMCH
It’s the first phase after a TLD has officially launched. Sunrise services give trademark owners the opportunity to protect domain names corresponding to their trademarks.
You will need proof your trademark is registered with the Trademark Clearinghouse in order to register your domain name during the Sunrise Period.
Trademark Clearinghouse domain squatting warnings
During the 90 days following the opening of a TLD to the public, any registrant of a domain name matching a TMCH-registered trademark will have to acknowledge the existence of said trademark and the risks associated with its registration. This makes it easier to demonstrate the registrant’s bad faith in a URS (Uniform Rapid Suspension) dispute. URS filings are quicker and cheaper than UDRP (Uniform Domain-Name Dispute-Resolution Policy) complaints.
Trademark active monitoring
As soon as a domain name matching your trademark is registered, you receive an email notification.
All new TLDs as well as the .com are covered by this alert system.
