IP Trademarks and Domain Names

(Applying for Missouri CLE credit)


This program will highlight, but not exclusively focus on, selected aspects of trademarks and domain names, including selecting and protecting trademarks and brands, domain name issues including protecting your existing brand with the new gTLD environment, and the practical impacts in trademark and domain name filing and prosecution strategies:

  • How do I select and protect a trademark or brand?
  • What is the new gTLD domain name landscape and what does it mean for me?
  • How do I protect my existing brand in connection with the Trademark Clearinghouse Sunrise for new gTLDs?
  • How do I protect my trademark/brand/reputation on the Internet and through social media usage?
  • How can I use third party trademarks for comparative advertising purposes?


  • John M. Challis, Shareholder, Polsinelli
  • Matthew J. Smith, Shareholder, Polsinelli
