The following open gTLD Sunrise Periods may be of interest to companies in the fashion and retail industries that wish to register their trademark as a domain name. Each new gTLD operator must provide a window during which only owners of brands registered with the Trademark Clearinghouse may purchase domain names reflecting their registered marks before offering second level domains to the general public. ICANN is announcing the new sunrise periods in rounds as new gTLDs are delegated. As explained in our previous advisory, you must register your company’s marks in order to participate in the sunrise periods for the new gTLDS.
