The Dreyfus IPweb platform allows you to better manage your trademarks and domain names portfolios, to instruct and monitor the progress of your files on a daily basis. Dreyfus also offers cutting edge trademark and domain name monitoring services.


Did you know? New gTLDs are replacing the conventional .com and, .fr gTLDs. Register the names of your corporate executives with the .ceo gTLD before it is too late! You may also want to register domain names with gTLDs that have a strong and relevant marketing impact. A .club extension may thus help foster customer loyalty and integrate them around your trademark.


Current news: Over a third of all new gTLDs will be trademarks (e.g. .chanel). ICANN, the Internet regulatory authority, recently authorised these trademarks to sign the registry agreement. They will be exempt from the Sunrise period reserved specifically to trademarks. As a second round for applications for new gTLDs is planned, it is recommended to consider opportunities to hold a new TLD and to think about its positioning with regards to existing TLDs.


In this digital world, trademark infringements are increasing and ever shifting. To enable you to manage your digital presence, Dreyfus now offers trademark monitoring on various social networks and on mobile app stores.


Registering a trademark with the Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH) enables you to be notified of any cybersquatting of your domain names and grants you a preferential right in the Sunrise period for the registration of your trademark with the new gTLDs. Dreyfus is accredited by TMCH and can assist you with the registration and monitoring of your trademarks within the new gTLDs.

Current news: the NTIA, a U.S government agency which manages part of the Internet has announced its intention to transfer its powers to a new multi-stakeholders global governance scheme, which will be more open and transparent.
