Eval.com: #Domain operators apply for the registration of the matching trademark

Wyoming based Eval.com, Inc., operators of the domain Eval.com, have filed an application for the registration of the matching mark, EVAL.COM.

The mark was applied for the following services, with a date of first use “as early as” on December 7, 2020:

Preparation of reports relating to real estate properties; real estate property reports and studies

Registered in 2002, the domain Eval.com provides real estate valuation reports.

In 2019, the domain name Eval.com was listed for sale on Afternic and from WHOIS record changes we can assume it was sold sometime in 2019. There is no information about a sale of Eval.com at NameBio. The company formed in 2018.

Why was EVAL.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.

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

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