What is the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH)?

Established by ICANN, the Trademark Clearinghouse is a service which verifies the existing trademark information of corporations. The successful completion of this verification process then grants mark owners access to the priority registration phases of each new TLD. Enrollment of marks into the TMCH also results in notifications to mark owners should any future infringing TLD registrations be performed by a third-party.
