When is the third level domains Relevant in a Domain Name Dispute?

A "club is a club": sports clubs, fan clubs, night clubs to use a domain name ending in ".club".
From the author:
"And, more UDRP panels are addressing the issue. For example:
In a new gTLD UDRP case that was similar to the <tes.co> decision, a panel considering whether the domain name <minnesota.life> was identical or confusingly similar to the trademark MINNESOTA LIFE wrote: “[W]ith the recent develop of new top-level domain names, panels have begun considering that the added TLD may serve to increase confusing similarity".

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, Life clubs should register a ".club" domain name at their accredited Registrar.
