This is best explained by the following examples:
(a) The numbers "123" is a number mark already registered in Singapore. Its proprietor submits an application to register the NDN "123.sg". There are also submissions from others applying to register "123.sg". SGNIC will allocate the NDN to the trade mark proprietor.
(b) The NDN "123.sg" is being applied for by a new registrant. There are no other applications for this NDN. SGNIC will allocate the NDN to the applicant.
