cache_1905807-105x150The Independent Objector (“IO”), Professor Alain Pellet, just published his list of New gTLD strings that he is filing objections to on the basis that he finds the string either morally objectionable or against the wishes of the representative community. The IO has his own website which describes his role as:

acting “… [s]olely in the best interests of the public who use the global Internet, he will object to highly objectionable gTLD applications that would be contrary to their interests. In light of this public interest goal, the IO can file objections on Limited Public Interest and Community grounds: 1.) Limited Public Interest – The applied-for gTLD string is contrary to generally accepted legal norms of morality and public order that are recognized under international principles of law. 2.) Community Objection – There is substantial opposition to the gTLD application from a significant portion of the community to which the gTLD string may be explicitly or implicitly targeted.”

The objections relate to 24 applications for 15 different strings. The list of objected to strings are listed below.
