Trademark Clearinghouse (“TMCH”) and the Domain Protected Marks List (“DPML”) are databases of validated and registered trademarks aimed to offer brand owners cost-efficient methods for preventing infringements through the domain name system.
As a holder of a registered trademark, you are able to enrol in the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH). This allows you to register new generic top-level domains (TLDs) prior to the general release. This can turn out very valuable if a TLD relevant for your business or brand is ever released, e.g. like .patent or .trademark would be for Zacco.
The Domain Protected Mark List (DPML) gives trademark holders the ability to block their trademarked names from registration across all of the top-level domains supported by a given registry.
