Company files trademark application.
Add .life to the potential pool of new top level domain names that may come online next year.
Fresnel Web Services, LLC filed a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office for “.life” earlier this week. The company is based in Newburyport, Massachusetts, but I was unable to find any information about it online.
The application covers “Registration and management of sponsored domain names on globabl (sic) networks”.
Nevermind that the USPTO doesn’t grant trademark rights for top level domain names. It’s also a lot cheaper to file a trademark for a $325 fee than to come up with the half million or so necessary to get a new TLD off the ground.
Still, I think this domain could come to fruition. It would be good for a number of social networking, photo sharing, and similar applications.
And to send a lot of misdirected traffic to Life.
