===Application Details===
 
Many of [[Donuts]]' applications, including this one, seem to have been applied for using the same boiler-plate application in which the TLD is defined as a means of providing greater expression on the Internet and will be an open TLD without pre-registration policies. It notes its plans to adhere with all registration policies required by ICANN and its intent to have remediation and takedown policies clearly defined to fit within these requirements. Pre-registration verification will not be used and this as defined as causing "cause more harm than benefit by denying domain access to legitimate registrants." They intend to control abuse through "extensive user and rights protections."<ref>[http://gtldresult.icann.org/application-result/applicationstatus/applicationdetails/887 ApplicationDetails, gTLDresult.ICANN.org]Retrieved 12 Dec 2012</ref>

==String Confusion Objection==
 +
[[Google]] submitted a String Confusion Objection to the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) (a division of the [[AAA]]) on March 13, 2013, asserting that '''.pet'''  and [[.pets]] are confusingly similar.<ref>[http://domainincite.com/docs/petsvpet.pdf <.pets> v <.pet>, Domain Incite.] Retrieved 20 August 2013</ref> [[.pets]]' only applicant is [[Donuts]], but a ruling by [[Richard Page]] of the [[ICDR]] that agrees with objection may put [[Donuts]] into the same contention set with current '''.pet''' applicants [[Google]] and [[Afilias]]. This ruling came as a surprise as similar String Confusion Objections for [[.hotel]] vs. [[.hotels]] and [[.car]] vs. [[.cars]] did not find the plural form of the strings to be confusingly similar.<ref>[http://domainincite.com/14224-google-beats-donuts-in-objection-pet-and-pets-are-confusingly-similar Google beats Donuts in Objection, Domain Incite.] Retrieved 20 August 2013</ref>
