Web 3.0 Trademark Protection
Navigate the complex trademark terrain with ease
Trademark protection within Web 3.0 often gets confused with protecting an NFT creation trademark or a trademark used only in the real world. While it’s much of a grey area, it’s more of a matter of obtaining trademark rights for a project or reinforcing an existing trademark in order to be able defend oneself against infringement and counterfeits in Web 3.0. Today, trademarks are one of the primary tools to defend oneself within the Web 3.0 space, existing trademarks and fight against infringements.
In the event a trademark aims to protect a digital assets, virtual goods and services, or marketing, communication, and financial services, a different protection strategy should be used.

We do so by doing an audit service to examine existing trademarks and integrate them into the metaverse. We also examine logos, graphic elements and product shapes.

Web 3.0 Domain Name Protection
Protecting your domain within the Web 3.0 space is extremely important. With a growing number of domain names and threats of ‘copycats’, ensuring your domain name is unique and impenetrable from any potential breaches will increase organizational value.
Similar to Web 2.0 (by ICANN), Web 3.0 has its own naming system. Many blockchains, such as Ethereum or Solana, offer a naming system to identify the tokens of a blockchain, based on the similar principles of traditional domain names.
Because of this, it’s possible to create a “domain name” in a blockchain to identify a Wallet, an NFT or land in the metaverse. Some important domain names in the blockchain to consider are <.eth>, <.btc>, <.ada>, <.crypto>, <.nft>, <.wallet>, <.coin>, <.bitcoin>, <.dcl.eth>, etc.
What many do not understand is Web 3.0 domain name extensions are not within ICANN’s scope and do not have a dispute resolution procedure (UDRP type). As such, it is highly recommended to seek the right professional guidance, especially if they are already reserved.

Monitoring of Domain Names & Platforms In Web 3.0
Monitoring Done Right
Creating the right domain is one important element to a successful business, but how you monitor that domain name over its lifetime is even more crucial. What happens if an issue with an existing domain arises that creates significant damage to your business’s bottom line? While dealing with the damage as it comes is one approach, a more strategic and effective preventative approach is to mitigate the risk before any threats arise.
Fortunately, we offer monitoring services in Web 3.0 on a variety of levels including:
• Monitoring domain names to detect any infringement of a trademark or another right
• Monitoring virtual land names
• Monitoring of major platforms such as Open Sea, Crypto.com, Rarible, Nifty Gateway, CryptoPunks/Larva Labs, Super Rare, Known Origin, Binance, Solanart, WAX, and Mintable
However, prior to setting up any monitoring, we recommend carrying out prior art research to better understand the full picture of your current situation. For example, establishing a defensive strategy, notification, or take-down.
At Dreyfus.io, our legal experts in platform dispute resolution can help you achieve that goal. Together, we’ll sit down with you to create a robust defensive strategy that’s aligned to the goals, trademarks, and virtual territory of your company.
