With ICANN’s announcement on Friday that 2,091 applications have been submitted with another 214 pending awaiting payment, the question now becomes how many Unique applications will there be for new gTLD?
There are many strings which have publicly announced multiple applicants including .music and .eco.
Even a brand application could have multiple applications which would be if two or more brands having a matching trademark in the world apply.
Even a Geo could have multiple application.
The frequently used example is an application from Paris, France and one from Paris, Texas.
So the question is now of the total number of applications, how many will be unique; that is the only application for that string.
