Trademarkia Adds Domain Registration Services with Trademark Verification

According to GigaOm Trademarkia has released a domain name registration service. As reported in the comments on GigaOm, the domain registration service will only notice trademarks that exactly match an existing trademark.Another caveat is that the notice of the potential infringement is only displayed relatively late into the checkout process.

Trademarkia is a trademark-research and production site/service. According to the domain registration service description it appears that their service will also help you register a trademark for your domain. Domain pricing starts at $2/year for a.biz domain.

The new service recognizes domains that are registered already and will offer the customer to “bid” on the domain name – potentially the sign of a coming brokerage service. It also displays a screenshot, social media comments and other information about the domain name. As pointed out by DNW, the service also offers you to file a cease and desist for $185 should there be an existing domain infringing¬† on your trademark (using the thumbnail search).

$185? I charge less than that, unless it’s some sort of unusual circumstance. Maybe I should raise my rates…

Their domain/mark search function sure is busted, if you ask me. I haven’t used the trademark search service, but I’d hope it works better.
