AdultBlock: ICM’s service to protect your brand online

Blog > Domain Names > Domain Management

As a brand owner, protecting your intellectual property online is your number one priority, especially when you know the damage cybersquatting or phishing can cause to your brand. With AdultBlock services, you can block specific terms from being registered with .PORN, .ADULT and .SEX as well as .XXX.

How does it work?

Trademark holders with a Signed Mark Data (SMD) file from the Trademark Clearing House (TMCH) are eligible to block their labels/registered terms.

The AdultBlock service allows brand owners to block the registered terms with all 4 TLDs .XXX, .ADULT, .SEX, and .PORN.

The AdultBlock+ also enables you to block all look alike variations that appear similar to the trademark or registered terms. AdultBlock+ covers over 20 languages and scripts including Chinese (Simplified & Traditional), French, German, Italian, Korean, Portuguese, Russian.

All available domains including premiums and IDN characters are covered by the service.

What are the key benefits?

  • Protect: Shield your brand from reputation damage, cybersquatting, phishing and malicious code.
  • Safeguard: Your brands' intellectual property.
  • Cost Effective: For a fraction of the cost of registering the names with no extra fees regardless of the number of variants.
  • Cost saving: Costs saved on potential URS/UDPR, takedowns and customer enquiries.

In other words,...years of peace of mind for a nominal one off fee!
