Avoid cybersquatters as new gTLDs are rolled out

Extract: "Further, ICANN has established a Trademark Clearinghouse (a database of recorded existing trade marks). Once a trade mark is registered in the Clearinghouse and use of the mark has been verified (if the mark has not been validated in a court of law), trade mark owners will benefit from a “sunrise period” entitling the brand owner to apply for a second level domain name for the mark. Brand owners will also be entitled to receive notice of a third party’s attempt to register an identical mark as a gTLD".
