Trademark Owners Survey
ICANN Rights Protection Mechanisms Survey
ICANN has commissioned Analysis Group to conduct a survey to assess the use and effectiveness of Sunrise and Trademark Claims Rights Protection Mechanisms (RPMs) adopted as part of ICANN’s New gTLD (generic top-level domain) registries program (
). These RPMs are provided through ICANN's Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) for trademark owners. We are interested in collecting feedback from trademark owners with portfolios of any sizes. All trademark owners and law firms representing trademark owner clients are encouraged to complete the survey.
