"In light of the public interest goal guiding his mission, the
Independent Objector has started to review the submitted new gTLD
applications in June 2012 and to make his independent assessment of
whether or not an objection should be filed against a particular
application on the grounds of limited public interest or community
objections. During his review, the IO has noted that some of the new
gTLD applications have given rise to numerous comments on the public
comments webpage of ICANN. Thus, to ensure transparency and address
public concerns on those controversial applications, opinions aims at
informing the public of the reasons why the IO does not or could
consider filing an objection.

As a first step, the IO intends to post comments on applications
which, after his careful review, appear not to be in contradiction
with fundamental principles of international law nor with the
legitimate interests of a clearly delineated community. Therefore, the
IO does not intend to file an objection against those applications at
the moment. However, it is important to note that those comments are
still preliminary and do not prejudge of the IO’s final decision to
file an objection against the application or not."
