Webinar – Using the Trademark Clearinghouse for New gTLDs
Here is the recording of the May 1, 2013 webinar entitled “Using the Trademark Clearinghouse for the New gTLDs.” On June 13, 2012, ICANN announced that 1,930 applications were filed for new top-level Internet domain names. These custom domains will be whatever the applicant desires to the right of the dot – .GOOGLE, .NEWS, or even .LOL. We covered the new gTLDS in a prior webinar. Trademark owners should consider registering their marks with the new Trademark Clearinghouse, which will provide notification of new domains that may incorporate your brand. In this webinar, we will cover how the Clearinghouse works, what it costs, and strategies for moving forward. Come learn from Davis McGrath LLC’s Kevin Thompson during this interactive webinar.
