Hey buddy, it’s probably too late to trademark .NYC

A good way to waste $325.

The guy who just recently wasted his money filing a trademark application for .music is at it again.

Joseph Walker DBA ExtraWeb Ent just filed trademark applications for .nyc and .shop.

New York City has already announced plans for the .nyc domain name and has selected a registry partner to bring it to market.

Numerous companies want to bring .shop to market as well.

Both of these applications will be summarily rejected by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

But I’ll give some clever points to Mr. Walker for filing this as if the marks are in use in commerce already. He attached a screenshot of supposed web sites at and to his applications.

Strange. I can’t get either of those sites to load.
