  2. Uniregistry, Corp.[2]

String Confusion Objection

.shop applicant Commercial Connect submitted an objection to Donuts' application for .shopping on the grounds that the two strings are confusingly similar and that Internet users might mistake the strings for one another. An ICDR panelist, Robert Nau, ruled in favor of Commercial Connect, which may force [[Donuts]' application into a contention set along with all of the applicants for .shop. However, no objection was filed against Uniregistry for their application of .shopping.[3] Nau was also the panelist who decided the case that found Amazon's application for .通販, which means "online shopping" in Chinese, to be confusingly similar to .shop. New gTLD applicant community members have expressed concern that the panelist chosen to decide certain objections has a major effect on the outcome of the objection.[4]
