How can I register a trademark in domaindiscount24 / Key-Systems?

A registered trademark is a nationally or regionally (i.e., multi-nationally) registered mark on the principal or primary register in the mark’s jurisdiction.

This means that the trademark in question must have national effect and be registered at the time it is submitted for verification. The following are not considered registered trademarks and will not be eligible for inclusion in the Clearinghouse.

Trademark applications:

  • Trademarks registered by a city, state, province, or sub-national region.
  • International trademark applications made via the Madrid system unless the underlying basic trademark registration has national effect.
  • Registered marks that were subject to successful invalidation, cancellation, opposition or rectification proceedings.

The following are not considered registered trademarks but might be eligible for inclusion in the Clearinghouse under another type of trademark:

  • Well-known or famous trademarks, unless they are also registered.
  • Unregistered (including common law) trademark.
  • Court-validated marks.
  • Marks protected under statute or treaty.
  • Other marks that constitute intellectual property.

SDM Inclusion: (Signed Mark Data)

ICANN has released the internet draft version (00) of the mark and signed mark definitions, also known as SMD. The draft defines the mapping for marks and signed mark data. The SMD files generated by the TMCH will follow this definition. This draft could be referenced by EPP extensions related to the implementation of the TMCH by Registries and Registrars. The draft has gone trough an extensive review and can be considered a stable reference. More Info: Link to SMD File
