The domain name is to the virtual, what the brand is to the real. It is actually a little more complicated but this small sentence allows to associate brands and domain names.
Itâ€™s in the context of this shared vision, that the South African brands registration Office, CIPC has developed a partnership with the registry of .ZA, the South Africa geographic extension.
Thus, the brand applicants can choose the â€śdomain nameâ€ť option, registering that way the two protections. This is here the first collaboration Iâ€™ve seen between these kinds of registration office.
For more information, you can read the CIPC press release.
Note that a webinar is planned on Thursday January 25 2018.
