Music artist Kanye West registered a .SUPPLY over a deal with Adidas

Extract: "West isn’t the only musician who has taken up domains in new gTLDs, albeit for different reasons. In March this year, it was widely reported that Taylor Swift registered her name in the .porn and .adult gTLDs. Microsoft sought defensive registrations, as did Virgin’s Richard Branson and club chain Stringfellows".

Note: did you know there is a TLD which means "trademark"? The ".商标" IDN stands for “.trademark” in Simplified Chinese.

Reminder:
  • Suppliers can register a ".supply" domain name with UniRegistry;
  • Brands can submit their trademark data into the Trademark Clearinghouse ("TMCH") to participate in a Sunrise Period. The TMCH calendar is available here;
  • Need to promote or sell your new gTLD? Contact Jovenet Consulting.
