The Trademark Clearing House (TMCH) is a centralised repository service for the validation and protection of trade marks. The TMCH is operated by ICANN, which is in the process of launching some 1 900 new generic top level domains (gTLDs). The gTLDs that have been launched to date include world, business, network, software, auction, property and investments, to name a few. A bank, for example, may want to register its trade mark under the gTLD bank. There may also be several additional relevant gTLDs, such as finance and loan.
