"Internet “has become a pet phrase of many people. However, you should create a server to publish information on the Internet. You must register your domain name first. Only have their own domain name to let others access to their own. Therefore, the Internet domain name registration is to establish the basis for any service. At the same time, due to the uniqueness of domain names, early registration is essential.
Why did not note the name is more headache than the trademark has been registered?
As in their respective domain names and trademarks are unique within the context. And, with the development of the Internet, from the perspective of corporate image building, domain names and from a sense, it has a relationship with the trademark. Therefore, it has some common
characteristics with trademark. Many enterprises in the choice of domain names often want to use and consistent with their own business domain name trademark. However, the domain name and trademark also has more than unique. For example,
Also holds a registered trademark Panda Electronics Group Company between to another chemical factory, they have the conflict in the domain name registration. Accordance with the "China Internet Domain Name Registration Interim Management Measures", both companies have the right to panda for the domain name registration. However, there is only one panda.xxx.cn. Then, under the provisions of the "China Internet Domain Name Registration Interim Measures” the domain name applications are in line and the quality network in accordance with the "first come, first registered” the principle of processing. The chemical factory had registered panda.xxx.cn first. After the website had been opened, the other Electronics Group Company had just submitted the Domain name applications of panda.xxx.cn. The result is the electronics company has been unable to use panda.xxx.cn as their domain name as their own.
It is not difficult to see from the above example; although the electronics company can still sell their electrical products with the brand name panda, but they probably never let their customers see the sites belong to them as www.panda.xxx.cn. This is definitely regretted.
