Teleconference About .ORG Sale: Thursday, April 30, 9 am PT/12 pm ET: EFF and Partners Discuss Future of .ORG as ICANN Decision Nears


Nonprofits Oppose Sale, Which Is Under Scrutiny by State Attorneys General

San Francisco—The sale of the .ORG domain registry to private equity firm Ethos Capital threatens to bring censorship and higher operating costs to nonprofit organizations and international NGOs working in the public interest around the globe. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) may decide as early as April 30 whether the transaction can move forward.

Experts at the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Access Now, NTEN, and Human Rights Watch will brief the media about the overwhelming opposition to the transaction within the nonprofit world, Ethos Capital’s lack of transparency and sham promises of stakeholder involvement, and what happens after ICANN votes.

The teleconference is Thursday, April 30, at 9 am PT/12 pm ET. To join the briefing, click on https://www.uberconference.com/savedotorg, or dial 415-857-0015, PIN: 43233. For international access numbers: https://www.uberconference.com/international
