Someone wants to trademark “.COM” at the United States Patent and Trademark Office!

A new trademark application at the USPTO attempts to register “.COM” – that is “dot com.”

The application cites the following services as the mark’s use:

Providing an on-line platform which provides insurance offers from multiple insurance companies

This is an “intent to use” application, so should domain investors who deal with dot .com domains be worried?

Probably not, as this is an application for a mark that consists of a stylized letter “C” depicted as a magnifying glass with a curved line in the inside arc of the “C”, and with “.COM” written in below.

Still, it’s pretty darn close.

The applicant is Compare.com Insurance Agency LLC, that operate the domain name Compare.com.
