This past week 47 new objections were filed at the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center for new gTLD strings. The WIPO center received the objections from March 8, 2013 to March 13, 2013 and these were posted on the WIPO website.

Most of the objections have been filed by applicants against competing applicants but there are some interesting objections to observe. One of the latest objections is the one from Pinterest against Amazon’s .pin string.
