==String Confusion Objection==
Initially, they were 3 applicants : [[Demand Media]] (United TLD|United TLD Holdco Ltd.), [[Famous Four Media]] (dot Agency Limited) and [[AC Webconnecting Holding B.V.]].[[Verisign]] submitted a separate [[String Confusion Objection]] to the [[ICDR]] against each of the applicants for .cam, on the basis that Internet users would confuse the string with the popular [[.com]] string. In two of the three objections submitted, the panelist assigned to the case ruled in favor of the applicant, meaning the objection was dismissed. However, [[Verisign]] prevailed in the objection against [[Demand Media]]'s application. This created a controversial scenario, one that [[ICANN]] did not appear to have a premeditated solution for. [[Demand Media]] called for [[ICANN]] to review its objections policy in order to resolve the issue.<ref>[ String Confusion in Disarray, Domain Incite] Retrieved 25 Sept 2013</ref>
