Differences between trademarks, business, company and domain names
Registration of a business name, company name or domain name will not provide you with exclusive rights to the marketing and advertising of your name unless you have ensured as much as possible, that you name is not likely to infringe upon any trademarks that are currently registered, or pending registration in Australia.
Or, you have obtained trademark registration for your exact name, or important component of your name with at least a trademark application under way.

Trademark Registration verses Domain Registration - What Are the Risks?
While many companies and businesses may be aware, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has brought about a whole new range of domain addresses.
No longer can businesses rely solely on .com, .com.au, or other historic prefixes. With the introduction of new domains such as .coffee and .clothing businesses are placed at a higher risk of inadvertent trademark infringement.
So what role does trademark registration play with domain registration? Well this is a highly complex area and one that many businesses are finding out the hard way, resulting in trademark infringement matters that can be costly and stressful.
