Protect your trademark

If you have a trademark, you need to protect it. The same way you secure your brand name across .com, .net, .org etc. you should also defensively register yourbrand.XXX. Branded domains are popular. Your name is the single most typed in search term that people use to find you, if the search results show two links, your website and yourname.XXX registered by someone else, where do you think most of the clicks will go? It's much easier to register defensively than it is to try to obtain your name once it's been registered by someone else. Save yourself time and money.

Are there any restrictions on registering a .XXX domain?
