Definition of Rights Holder and related procedures
Dear all,please find bellow comment focused on Rights Holder and pro-active work TMCH Sunrise and Claim Operators.
/The TMCH (Trademark Clearinghouse Rights Protection Mechanism) Requirements describe the general mechanisms among all stakeholders, especially between the Registry Operators and the TMCH Sunrise and Claims Operators. However, I´m missing a *definition who the Trademark Holder* *is. *Equally, there is no the information whether any *documents are needed to prove* their rights to the trademark or whether the TMCH Sunrise and Claim Operators themselves receive information about the trademark from official trademarks registers, such as WIPO Global Brand Database (//_www.wipo.int/branddb <http://www.wipo.int/branddb>_//) or CTM-ONLINE (Community trade mark database). Conditions for verifying the rights to the trademark should be the same and standardized for all TMCH Sunrise and Claims Operators in order to provide more transparency and less bureaucracy within the new gTLD process./
Kind Regards Jiri
