AJ Park now registered agent for Trademark Clearinghouse

Article  \  5 Apr 2013

AJ Park is a registered agent for the Trademark Clearinghouse, a new international database of trade marks. 

The Clearinghouse is a global repository designed to help protect trade marks during the rollout of new global top-level domain names (gTLDs).

We can offer assistance from preliminary advice, through to registering and managing your marks in the Clearinghouse. The most important thing to know is that without registering your marks with the Clearinghouse, you will miss out on the chance to obtain new domain names during Sunrise Periods - only owners with Clearinghouse-registered marks will be able to snap these up. The Clearinghouse can also act as a "burglar alarm" to let you know if someone else is trying to register a domain name that contains your mark.

To find out more about the Clearinghouse, and the procedures and costs associated with registering your marks, please contact one of our team.
