How to check the status of a DPML Block

Q. Will there be any public interface for the end customer where they will be able to check the status of their DPML?

A.  The whois output at  “http://whois.donuts.co/” is public and can be accessed by anyone. If you search Whois for your trademark and any valid Donuts Registry TLD it will inform you that the label is subject to a DPML block. 

For example, if you search for “yourtrademark.camera” you will receive the following notice:

This domain name is not registered. It is blocked from registration as a domain name. This string is a trademark. If you have an exact match trademark for this string, it may be available for registration.
