Let me start by stating *very* clearly:
we will make absolutely no changes to the open registration policy of .org.
As to your specific questions:
(1) Do you intend to protect existing registrants
from revocation of their domain names based solely upon the premise that the registrant
is not registered as a 501(c)(3) organization or is without some other not-for-profit
Answer: We will *not* require any formal designation.
The .org TLD has an open registration policy.
(2) Do you intend to amend or add
to the UDRP to reflect a new policy that a name can be transferred to another registrant
based solely upon the fact that the existing registrant cannot prove to the arbitration
panel that the domain name in question is being used for non-commercial activities
by a not-for-profit organization?
(3) Will you continue to support
a .ORG registry that is open for registration by the general public, as recommended
in item 2b of the Final Report (version 5.4) on .ORG divestiture(1), drafted by the
DNSO Dot Org Names Council Task Force?
(4) Even though all of the
proposals indicate each applicant's determination to differentiate the marketing
techniques for the .ORG gTLD, if selected, would you (as the new registry operator)
continue to embrace the openness of .ORG as a "generic" gTLD (without registrant
restrictions) as orginally reflected in RFC 1591(2)?
Answer: There will be no changes
to the open registration policy of the .org TLD.
