As we recently informed you, the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) has released a new trademark protection service called TREx. We believe that this is a great new service, because it covers many different registries. The wide coverage is a big advantage over similar services which protect names within one registry only.
However, TMCH was challenged by the implementation of this service: some registries allow “reservation” of domain names, but other registries prefer special domain registrations.
We are very proud that TMCH has selected Openprovider as the sole back-end registrar for those registries. We consider it once again a proof that our new gTLD strategy and brand promise (offering all extensions at a fair price) is the right way to go.
On a final note, it may be good to know that TMCH shares no company details, jurisdiction, trademark information and other sensitive data with registries or Openprovider. Only the labels to block are shared.
