Expert guidance in the new Internet frontier
As the Internet domain name space continues to expand via the delegation of new generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs), global corporations continue to gain unprecedented opportunities as well as face numerous challenges in managing their intellectual property and protecting their brands online. Having access to hundreds of new gTLDs and the need to make ensuing decisions around how to use them – from submitting trademarks to the Trademark Clearinghouse to making defensive registrations or utilizing Domain Protected Marks List (DPML) Blocking services to actively using new domain registrations – means that knowledge and expertise is required now more than ever. Perhaps the largest of these decisions for companies is to determine whether to operate their own “islands” on the Internet, that is, to apply for their own brands as TLDs (called ‘dot Brands’).
MarkMonitor provides the expertise a corporation needs in this uncertain and ever-changing environment, delivering a comprehensive suite of solutions and services designed to reduce complexity and bring clarity to whatever situation presents itself, from new gTLD registration decisions to becoming a dot Brand applicant or registry operator.
