Five new gTLDs, .christmas, .blackfriday, .onl, .中文网 (.website), and .在线 (.online), are now in Trademark Sunrise–the latter two are IDNs. The TM Sunrise period is specifically for trademark holders to register domains that are the exact match (e.g., trademarkname.TLD) to the existing corresponding trademark(s).
Sunrise ends for .Christmas and .blackfriday on May 2, for .onl on March 15, and for .中文网 (.website) and .在线 (.online) on March 17, 2014.
