Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH)
TMCH is a database established by ICANN, the international organization that manage and control of all generic top-level domain (gTLD) and country code (ccTLD).
The purpose of TMCH is to ensure to owners of registered trademarks the registration of new gTLDs, before their general availability.
So if you want to protect your brand on internet, can request subscription to the TMCH, and if the application is approved, TMCH insert your registered trademark into the database and and a “Signed Mark Data” file is issued to the trademark holder.
The TMCH accepts any registered trademark of at least national effect from any country in the world.
Court-validated trademarks and marks protected by statute or treaty can also be submitted to the TMCH
