What is Trademark Clearinghouse

Trademark Clearinghouse is a service established by ICANN to verify the existing trademark information of corporations. Successful completion of this verification process grants mark owners access to the priority registration phases of each new TLD. Enrollment of marks into the TMCH also results in notifications to mark owners should any future infringing TLD registrations be performed by a third-party.

TMCH Ongoing Notifications

If your trademark is successfully enrolled with TMCH, any attempt by a third-party domain registrant to register your trademark as a domain name across 1200+ gTLDs including .COM, .NET, .ORG will trigger an automated email notification. When used in tandem with Brand Protection domain blocks and Domain Monitoring, TMCH can form a powerful trident of tools to defend your marks and terms online.
