Block registration of domains that infringe upon your intellectual property at a fraction of the cost it would take to register those Rightside domains.
From the beginning, Rightside Registry worked with ICANN and their partners to put a Rights Protection Mechanism in place before launching their gTLDs. DPML is that mechanism. It stands for Domain Protected Marks List. It allows trademark holders to protect their validated trademarks by blocking their trademark and trademark + term — without defensively purchasing real estate on every Rightside gTLD.
How Does DPML Work?
For brands that are registered with the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH), a trademark (TM) holder can use DPML to protect their brand across all current and future Rightside gTLDs. DPML registration applies to an exact trademark match, a variation on a trademark or as a trademark plus a linked term. Prices are likely to increase as more Rightside gTLDs are added.
All brands that have eligible trademarks and a valid SMD may purchase a DPML subscription. Customers or agents must use the SMD during the registration process to block that specific term across all Rightside gTLDs.
