In a new blog post at "Isenberg On Domains," Doug Isenberg writes about, "What You Really Need to Know About ICANN's Trademark Clearinghouse." In the post, Isenberg writes that:

- TMCH participants are not guaranteed domain name registrations even during the sunrise periods.
- The TMCH’s “Trademark Claims Service” won’t prevent cybersquatting.
- The TMCH’s attenuated protections are limited to “exact matches” and other narrow criteria.
