Return to Proposed Revisions to NSI Agreements Forum - Message Thread - FAQ
I got spam email last week,
urging me to "protect" my non-existent business by registering the .org and .net
domains that matched my also-nonexistent .com domain. That's where the problem lies:
not with the fact that I don't have the paperwork to be a 501(c)3 corporation, but
with companies grabbing extra domains they're not entitled to.
I hold redbird.org.
An ISP is redbird.net. There's a note on my main Web page pointing to them, for anyone
who has come to my domain in error. This is all that's needed, where confusion exists,
which isn't very often.
My suggestion would be to require anyone who holds domainname.com
to prove that they should be allowed to register the matching .org domain. "People
might get confused" isn't justification: those who play guess-the-URL will start
with .com anyhow.
Leave the other .org domains alone. Revoking them would be disruptive,
and accomplish no worthwhile purpose.
