Domain name registry Rightside launched a new Domain Protected Marks List (DPML) package on 17 April. The package includes coverage of Rightside’s premium domains across their complete TLD portfolio which includes the “.lawyer”, “.auction” “.engineer” “.dentist” extensions.
The DPML is a mechanism which enables trademark owners who have registered their trademarks at the Trademark Clearing House (TMCH) to block registrations of identical or similar trademarks in new gTLD extensions.
As well as protecting their trademarks, trademark owners may also protect misspellings, variants and IDNs in several languages.
Protection may be obtained for one to ten year periods.
The IP Twins team can assist you in obtaining DPML protection.
