China’s 3rd largest company with a market capitalization of $235 billion dollars has filed to register the matching mark, ALIBABA.COM, with the USPTO.

Unlike many other Chinese trademark applications, this one represents a famous brand with a global footprint. The application was filed with a priority note and it’s based on an existing trademark application made in Singapore.

Alibaba was formed in 1999 and initially operated from the domain registered in December 1998, before moving to in April 1999.

That domain was apparently sold in early 1999, as this capture can provide proof of.
