When ICANN during the summer of 2012 revealed the list of all applications in the new TLD program, there were 1930 applications. This large amount of new TLDs will change a lot of current activity on the Internet, and the requirements for intangible assets and brands will be even harder than before. Therefore, ICANN decided that there should be a so-called Trademark Clearinghouse.
Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) is a database that will increase the protection of trademarks on the Internet. Simply put, this is a central repository for information about brands and their owners, to be verified, stored and disseminated. The idea is that the holder of a trademark should only have to register it in one place, when they wish to cover the launch of the all new TLDs. The use of TMCH is a requirement for all new TLDs.
