will be operated for the next several years.
The VeriSign, Inc. will give up control over the .org registry 
by the end of 2002.

VeriSign to a new entity, including at least:

       as responsible for operation of the .org TLD, or to 
       establish a new entity;

   (b) the characteristics of the entity to be selected or established;

   (c) selection criteria for the entity or its organizers;
