Hi. I ran across your thread on the .ORG takeover topic. I'm on the board of the Cooperative Corporation of .ORG Registrants, ccor.org, which was put together to represent .ORG domain holders, as an alternative to being sold out to private equity.
We've arrived at this situation because an organization that was supposed to be looking out for the .ORG domain reneged on that arrangement, and sold it out instead... We're trying to learn from that failure and come up with a solution that will be more permanent, so we aren't back here fixing this same problem again in a few years. The cooperative structure seemed like a good way to do that, because the board can't modify the Articles or Purposes once the membership is instantiated... and we've defined the membership as the full set of .ORG registrants, a majority of whom (six million globally) would have to vote to make any changes. There's a copy of the Articles at:
...and it should be downloadable from the California Secretary of State web site eventually. Your input would be appreciated. We'd like to make this document as strong as possible, before it's locked in and immutable.
If you all have any suggestions for us, or questions I can answer, please let me know.
