EUIPO, EURid Offer Service Alerting Trademark Owners to Domain Registrations

The European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and EURid, the registry manager of the .eu and .ею country code top-level domains, has launched a new service designed to help European Union trade mark (EUTM) applicants tackle cybersquatting and bad faith domain name registrations. The new service will allow rights holders and applicants to opt-in to receive alerts as soon as a .eu or .ею domain name identical to their EUTM application is registered.
