The new gTLD info for Thursday, May 12th

I surfed a bit this morning and went through the major Trademarks who registered their ".gdn" domain name. There are many already:
  1. Facebook
  2. Instagram
  3. Mark Monitor
  4. Periscope
  5. Twitter
  6. Wordpress
  7. Microsoft
  8. Oculus Rift
  9. Amazon
  10. Citibank
  11. ...
Some of them does not appear in that list. Did you notice which? To my understanding, this is one of the reasons why major Trademarks should pay attention to this domain name extension. Domain names ending in ".gdn" are for investors, not Trademarks, but this does not mean that it should be neglected.
