The Trademark ClearingHouse Worked So Well One Company Got 24 New gTLD Using The Famous Trademark “The”

Posted on the 02 February 2017 by Worldwide @thedomains

The Trademark ClearingHouse (TMCH) which was set up/ contracted by ICANN to protect those famous worldwide brand names from abuse by those nasty domain name squatters resulted in a whole new industry.

Those playing the TMCH for their own benefit to get first jump at new gTLD domain names to get registered in Sunrise ahead of all other under common words like “the”

Actually there maybe no better example than those domain names obtained on the world-famous trademarks as of the word”the”,  which is the most used word in the English language.

The world-famous trademark for the word “the” was obtained by Goallover Limited of London who according to DomainTools.com owns an amazing amount of domain names approaching nearly 100, but was able to get all of the following new gTLD’s using their globally well-known trademark on the word “the” under the ICANN trademark clearinghouse rules which  allows them to obtain the domain names ahead of all other applicants.

Of course the company could have had obtained even more “the” new gTLD domain names in Sunrise but apparently did not apply for more.

Somehow the company doesn’t appear to own the domain name The.Com

For all Trademark Holders its nice to know the world is a safer place:
