In addition to well-known top-level domains (TLDs) such as .de, .com, .net, etc., new ones are being introduced all the time; there are currently over 1,500 new TLDs waiting to be activated. The risk of third parties using your company and product names in new domain names is correspondingly high and can hardly be monitored manually.
Our Domain Trademark Protection Services actively support you to prevent infringements of your trademark rights or even misuse of your trademarks in time. The service applies to trademarks that are registered in a trademark register, protected by contracts or otherwise recognized as intellectual property.
With the “Sunrise Service”, you can register those domains that contain or clearly refer to your trademarks even before the official introduction of a new top-level domain; in this way, you prevent preventive registration by third parties.
The “Trademark Claim Service” warns the applicant when attempting to register a domain if it infringes your trademarks. During the first 90 days of a new TLD, you will also be notified about registrations by third parties.
With the optional “Abused DNL Service” you can additionally deposit your court-approved labels; e.g. those that were awarded to you in a court judgment after an abusive use of your trademarks.
