The .COM Era Is Over, Welcome to .ANYTHING

A "club is a club": sports clubs, fan clubs, night clubs to use a domain name ending in ".club".
From the author:
"If a gTLD has source-indicating significance (.yourbrand), it may be registrable as a trademark. However, not every gTLD will qualify as a trademark. If the proposed mark is perceived merely as part of a website address, it will not be registrable".

Reminders:
  • Trademarks should submit their datas into the Trademark Clearinghouse to participate in future Sunrise Periods. The official TMCH calendar is available here;
  • For a better recognition, Brand clubs should register a ".club" domain name at their accredited Registrar.
