Trademark Clearinghouse Offers Means for Policing Trademark Use in Domain Names

Posted on March 30, 2013 at 9:10 PM

At the present time only 22 generic top level domain names (gTLD's) are available for use.  (.com, .org, .net, etc.)  In the coming months, more than a thousand gTLD's will be made available, making the policing of trademark use in domain names a difficult task.

A new Trademark Clearinghouse will be available to monitor unauthorized trademark use in these expanded domain names.  The tool will cost $150 for a one year registration; however it only tracks identical trademark matches.

UPDATE: Launch of gTLD's is expected in fall of 2013. Businesses should consider registering with the Trademark Clearinghouse as soon as possible to protect their rights on the internet.
