Pinterest Files Legal Rights Objection to Amazon’s .pin Domain Application

It has been reported that Pinterest has filed a legal rights objection against Amazon.com over its application to run the .pin top level domain.

As with Amazon’s other top level domain applications, it plans to operate .pin as a closed registry and will not offer second level domain names to consumers and businesses.

While you can understand what Amazon would do with other domain names it has applied for, such as .book or .app, it’s not that clear to to most thus far what .pin has to do with Amazon’s business.

Other legal rights objections published today include .cam, .limited, .axis, .tube, and .bio. – see the entire list here
