                   Mark and Signed Mark Objects Mapping


   Domain Name Registries (DNRs) may operate in special modes for    certain periods of time, enabling trademark holders to protect their    rights during the introduction of a Top-Level Domain (TLD).

   One of those special modes of operation is the Sunrise Period.  The    Sunrise Period allows trademark holders an advance opportunity to    register domain names corresponding to their trademarks before names    are generally available to the public.

   This document describes the format of a mark and a digitally signed    mark used by trademark holders for registering domain names during    the Sunrise Period of generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs).  Three types    of Mark objects are defined in this specification: registered    trademarks, court-validated marks, and marks protected by statue or    treaty.
