Re: [nc-udrp] gnso.org

Dear Mr. Sheppard,

Your hypothetical question is unlikely to be considered on-topic for the UDRP
Review Task Force Mailing List.  When asked nicely, I answer nicely, and
indeed consider it a Christian duty to respond nicely when asked rudely.
There is another party involved in the administration of the domain name, Mr.
Richard Sexton, who also responds nicely.  The domain name was indeed secured
to prevent abuse of the domain name for purposes inimical to bottom-up
consensus-based technical coordination among internet root server systems.

I regret that I am reasonably precluded by the Pennsylvania Disciplinary
Rules of Professional Conduct, Rule 4.3, from offering advice on using the
UDRP in these circumstances, other than advising such party to secure
counsel.  Such counsel may consider some recent cases of interest involving
non-profit organizations and domain names:

Dear Mr. Berryhill,
if the chair of the Names Council were to ask you nicely would you, as the
current owner, be willing to transfer ownership of the domain name gnso.org
to the appropriate entity to enable use of this domain in place of today's

If not would you advise using the UDRP as a mechanism for the GNSO to obtain
the name?
