New domain listings site wants a trademark on descriptive term.
From the merely descriptive file…
A Florida company has filed two trademark applications with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for “Domain Auction” and “Domains Auction”.
The applications, filed by Coracao LLC, claim a first use date of earlier this month.
Coracao’s trademark applications seem to be spurred by its recent launch of a domain name and website sales site at DomainAuction.xyz. The goods and services in the applications list “On-line auction services featuring domain names and web sites”.
If the company wants a stylized trademark for its totally rad logo, that’s one thing. But the term itself?
You can see the application for “Domain Auction” here (pdf).
