Trademark case

The English name of this blog is "domain name". It's very original, because this blog is mainly about... domain names ;-)
Someone registers the trademark "domain name", for (among other things) electronic communication services, legal services, etc. Is the name of this blog infringing this trademark?
Of course not (even under French law!!!)

(Thanks to Frederic Glaize, French Trademark Attorney, for spotting the amazing registration below)

I have to mention that this is an application for a TM registration.

The application has to make it through the Trademark Office's examination before it is registered.

My guess is : the applicant is looking forward to having a TM registration ready for the sunrise period for a certain new TLD.
