String Confusion Objection
A String Confusion Objection is one of the many types of objections that applicants of New gTLDs or owners of current gTLDs can file against other applications. For instance, a common objection is against plural strings, as ".example" and ".examples" may be seen confusing for Internet users.
The String Confusion Objection was determined by ICANN, which appointed the International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) to be the Dispute Resolution Service Provider (DRSP) for this type of objection. This type of objection could be filed during the formal objection filing period of the New gTLD Program between June 13, 2012 and March 13, 2013. The outcomes of the objections are being published as they are resolved, within about five months after the closing of the filing period.
