Trademark Validation

Register and validate your trademark(s) in the TMCH ( TradeMark ClearingHouse). To do so you should already have a valid trademark from any jurisdiction in the world. In addition a copy of the trademark, and evidence that the trademark is being actively used, is required for the process. 

Once submitted clearinghouse will assess your application for accuracy, validity and all requirements. Once validated, the application is used to apply for domain names in new gTLD Sunrise Phases, well before the general public can attempt to participate. 

As part of this service are the alerts that the TMCH sends to validated trademark holders if other parties are registering their marks, representing possible infringement registrations.

Cost & Process

Trademark defence at the best prices

Each subscription applies across all TLDs operated by Donuts and cannot be applied to a subset. The earlier a DPML subscription is purchased, the more useful it is. DPML subscription doesn’t block registrations made prior that subscription, therefore is recommended to utilize DPML before the launch of the Donuts TLD.

STEP 1

Use our Trademark Validation service to register your mark. 

STEP 2

Choose DPML Basic (5 years) or DPML Plus (10 years) service for your term’s string

STEP 3

Once is accepted, that term is blocked from registration for all Donut TLDs
