The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has established a central repository of authenticated trademark information associated with the new generic Top Level Domains (gTLD) called the Trademark Clearinghouse. In this video, Monica Riva Talley explains the registration process for the Clearinghouse, as well as the benefits of registering. Specifically, she states that the Clearinghouse will allow clients to register domain names under the new gTLDs, as well as monitor third party registrations. Additionally, it will allow entities to register domain names during the Sunrise Period, the period during which trademark holders can secure domains ahead of the general public.
