Bootcamp.com #trademark application indicative of aged #domain sale

The operators of the ultra-premium domain name, Bootcamp.com, have applied for a federal trademark registration at the USPTO.

Registered in 1994, the domain Bootcamp.com was offered for sale on Afternic until late 2020, where it most likely changed hands by being sold for an estimated six figures.

Bootcamp.com was previously the web site of a publication by Fishkin Media, that changed its name to Techstination.

In late 2020, Bread Media and Bootcamp Prep LLC merged, with the surviving entity being Bootcamp Prep LLC. An educational startup, Bootcamp.com launched in December 2020.

The trademark application was filed by Florida formed BOOTCAMP PREP LLC with an “intent to use” clause, indicating that no prior use is claimed at the time of the filing.

The application is for BOOTCAMP.COM and for the following services:

Why was BOOTCAMP.COM applied for as a trademark at the USPTO?

It’s an ongoing trend among owners of generic domain names, following the decision by SCOTUS on the Booking.com trademark application.

Since then, dozens of generic domain names have been applied to be registered as trademarks, inclusive of the TLD. We keep track of these applications, and so far none has been decided upon.

As of January 5th, 2021, BOOKING.COM is a registered trademark with the USPTO.
