Cart.com : New #trademark application indicates #domain sale has occurred

A fresh trademark application for CART.COM at the USPTO is a positive indicator that the domain Cart.com was recently sold.

The aged domain listed for sale through the Uniregistry Market platform, along with Afternic.

The application for the registration of the CART.COM mark was made with an “intent to use” clause, re-enforcing the sentiment that it was made by the domain’s new owner after a recent acquisition.

In the application, a Delaware corporation “Cart, Inc.” is listed as the applicant of the mark. There are several classes that CART.COM was applied for:

Computer e-commerce software to allow users to perform electronic business transactions via a global computer network; Software for mobile devices for use in e-commerce and the retail industry to allow users to perform business management via a global computer network, namely, database management, sales and customer tracking and inventory management; Software for mobile devices for use in e-commerce and the retail industry, namely, software for point of sale transactions; Application programming interface (API) software that enables developers to build software applications for use in the retail and e-commerce industry

The domain name Cart.com was last reported sold on December 29, 2011 at Sedo, for $49,999 dollars according to NameBio. The web site at Cart.com is under construction, with the note “Cart.com – The future of ecommerce coming soon.”

According to historical WHOIS data via DomainTools, Cart.com apparently changed hands on September 25, 2020.

Cart.com is without doubt an ultra-premium domain name, and the previous selling price was a steal.

Why was CART.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.

Will these applications become the new norm? Watch this video from NamesCon Online 2020.
