Trademark owners who do not want to be associated with the adult industry can block others from using their trademarks in .XXX domain names.

ICM Registry, the firm managing the launch of .XXX, has developed a unique procedure by which trademark owners who do not want to be associated with the adult industry can block others from using their trademarks in .XXX domain names.

Please see full alert below for more information.
