What are the benefits of a Trademark Clearinghouse validated mark?
A mark that is validated by the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) provides the following advantages:
- The trademark holder gets the highest priority to claim his matching domain name during a registry's sunrise period. Register yourtrademark.tld using the unique code, called SMD (Signed Mark Data), which you received after validation of your trademark.
- You will be notified if somebody registers a domain name that matches your trademark in any extension that is in the Trademark Claims Period.
- The trademark holder can apply for additional trademark protection services.
