If, however, ICANN attempts to force existing .org domain holdersto
comply to USA-specific definitions of non-profit corporations,there will be a
serious backlash. And I'll be part of it.
Org has been recommended by IANA as the
namespace for personaldomains for some time. antipope.org is valuable to me,
personally,as I've had this domain for five years and am widely associated
I provide a small freenet service to anyone who asks me for access,and
host a number of other .org domains (such as paganlink.orgwhich is non-profit
in operation, albeit not a US-based non-profit corporation). To remove my right
to my own .org domain will do me considerable professional damage (both to my
reputation onthe net -- I'm a journalist -- and by removing my long-standingcontact
information). It'd also do damage to this religious organisation, who I assume
wouldn't be happy, either.
I'm afraid if this proposal goes through without any
considerationI will have to ask my lawyer about my options for legal redressagainst
ICANN. All I know is that I won't be the only one ...
