Demys has been appointed one of the first Trademark Clearinghouse agents, allowing them to register and protect their client’s marks in the new generic top level domain spaces.

The Trademark Clearinghouse is a centralised repository of validated registered trade marks and is designed to safeguard trade marks in new gTLD spaces and its protections form part of every new gTLD’s registry agreement with ICANN.

The clearinghouse represents the only way to have marks safeguarded through new gTLDs’ built in protection mechanisms and allows rights holders to take part in sunrise periods – the initial 30 days period of a TLD’s launch in which rights holders can register domain names corresponding to their marks before the general public are allowed to register on a first-come first-served basis.

To find out more about the trademark clearinghouse and how it forms part of your online strategy please contact your usual account manager.
