Trademark+50 costs $75 to $200 a pop

The Trademark Clearinghouse has started accepting submissions under the new “Trademark+50” service, with prices starting at about $76.

It’s now called the Abused DNL (for Domain Name Label) service.

It allows trademark owners to add up to 50 additional strings — which must have been cybersquatted according to a court or a UDRP panel — to each record they have in the TMCH.

To validate labels found in court decisions, it will cost mark owners $200 and then $1 per abused string. For UDRP cases, the validation fee is $75.

If you’re on the “advanced” (read: bulk) fee structure, the prices drop to $150 and $50 respectively.

To add a UDRP case covering 25 domains to the Abused DNL would cost $100 in the first year and $25 a year thereafter, for example.

Adding a trademark to the TMCH costs between $95 and $150 a year, depending on your fee structure.
