Application Details


An official Legal Rights Objection was filed by the applicant NTT Resonant Inc. against fellow applicant Google.[2]

A Legal Rights Objection, as defined by the ICANN approved mediator, WIPO, is when, "third parties may file a formal objection to an application on several grounds, including, for trademark owners and Intergovernmental Organizations (IGOs) [..] When such an objection is filed, an independent panel (comprised of one or three experts) will determine whether the applicant’s potential use of the applied-for gTLD would be likely to infringe [..] the objector’s existing trademark, or IGO name or acronym."[3]

Google subsequently withdrew its application in June 2013.[4]
