ICANN’s new gTLD process has taken another step forward. The period for filing formal objections against new generic top-level domains (gTLDs) has now been closed, and the Trademark Clearinghouse has been opened. The Clearinghouse is a global database of trade-marks to permit trade-mark owners to verify trade-mark information and use it to support trade-mark claims as the new gTLDs are rolled out. ICANN has announced that verification services are available now.

Watch for more updates in this area and if you are a Canadian trade-mark owner, check back as we will post details about how to submit your trade-mark to the Clearinghouse.
