Eighth, restriction of the use of partial trademarks (tobacco trademarks and well-known trademarks) are not applicable to a ".商标";

In the Internet information age, the value of conventional trademarks are more embodied by trademark right, but ".商标" resolves issues of protection, representation, application, and use of branded trademarks on the Internet much more prominently. A ".商标" is the combination of a trademark and a domain name. A ".商标" and a trademark are not exchangeable. A ".商标" upgrades the use and value of a trademark. A".商标" and a trademark facilitate and complement each other.

".商标" enables a new representation form for trademarks in the Internet information age, which is an innovative intellectual property symbol that combines a domain name on the World Wide Web and a trademark. A ".商标" gives a trademark even bigger space to use and represent, invigorating trademark, increasing its application effect, enabling faster dissemination of trademark and wider influence of brand, highlighting trademark rights in a stronger way, improving the right protection of trademarks, and effectively exalting brand value, as well as continuing the value, function, and significance of trademark in the Internet information age.
