Friday Factoid – 3.29.13

As a lead-up to the creation of hundreds of new global top level domain names (i.e., .web and .lawyer), the Trademark Clearinghouse is now accepting applications to record registered marks and certain other marks.  Owners who record their marks with the Trademark Clearinghouse may apply to pre-register certain domain names that are an “identical match” with their registered marks.  For a short animated video about this development, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXP2dieeZes.
