Yep. It looks that way. Unless you have a substantive connection with the EU, it seems that a US trademark is no use in acquiring a .eu in the sunrise phase. However if someone has registered your trademark abusively, there may be grounds for objecting to the registration.
So does that mean that trademark holders in the US without a European office cannot claim their .eu domain (as the thread title suggests?)
