Now that the Sunrise Phase of Arabic domain names in Tunisia is approaching (June 1st to September 28th, 2012), we would like to emphasize on the fact that domain name requests should only be based on trademarks registered / filed in Tunisia in Arabic. In light of this, we believe that the next course of action for applicants interested in domain name registration should be as follows:

1. Identify the Arabic domain names of interest
2. Check whether there is an adequate protection of the Arabic transliteration of the trademarks
3. File the necessary trademark application for the Arabic marks in case not available
4. Register the Arabic domain names in order to prevent any attempts of cyber-squatting
