1.  Introduction

   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 specification was defined as part of the development of the
   ICANN Trademark Clearinghouse (TMCH).  The ICANN TMCH is a global
   repository for trademark data used by DNRs, registrars and trademark
   holders during the registration process of domain names.

   This document describes a mapping of the common elements found in
   trademark data (Mark).  A digitally signed Mark (Signed Mark) format
   is defined in order to support digital signatures on the Mark object.
   Finally a mapping for encoding the Signed Mark is defined.
