Duration Change Notice for“.商标”domain name registrations based on Trademark Application Proof (Simplified Chinese IDN.xn--czr694b)
Source： ".商标"RegistryDate： 2015-07-14
As you may already know, “.商标”domains can be registered by registrants providing proof of either a valid Registered Trademark OR Trademark Application. In consideration of typical trademark application times taking up to 2 years or more, with immediate effect the “.商标” registry extends the maximum registration duration for domain name registrations based on proof of a Trademark Application. This change provides global trademark applicants with the additional time needed to secure their domain names while registering their trademark(s).
Domain name registrations based on proof of a Trademark Application can have a registration term of 1-2 years, with a renewal period of up to 2 years where the total registration period does not exceed 2 years. Renewals can be made within 30 days of the domain’s expiry date provided that the trademark application used for the initial registration is still valid. If at any time during the registration period, a registrant’s trademark application is approved and results in a registered trademark by a recognized intellectual property organization of the relevant Designated Place, the registrant can submit the registered trademark proof to their registrar and, after being approved by the registry, the domain name will be removed from "server hold" status and have full DNS control and privileges.
