Default Inside the Billion-Dollar Battle Over .Org


A private equity firm wants to buy the internet domain used by nonprofits. A group of online pioneers says it is not the place to maximize profits.

Now, a group of respected internet pioneers and nonprofit leaders is offering an alternative to Ethos Capital’s bid: a nonprofit cooperative corporation. The incorporation papers for the new entity, the Cooperative Corporation of .ORG Registrants, were filed this week in California.

Interesting, but, if Ethos Capital does secure the ownership of dot-org, and is perceived to misbehave by sufficiently many registrants, they could still just build their cooperative dot-neoorg and move there. It would be a PITA in the short term, but in the long run not a big deal.
