Trade mark owners will have two months, starting from December 3 this year, in which to protect their brands in the new .tel top-level domain (TLD)
Dot-tel, which was approved as a sponsored TLD by ICANN in May 2006, is designed to be used by individuals and businesses to publish contact data, such as telephone numbers, email addresses, domains and social networking information.
The sunrise period, in which trade mark owners can register their rights, will last from 1500 GMT on December 3 2008 to February 2 2009. Registrations will last for three years.
