PALM BEACH, FL – A letter signed off by four U.S representatives, one of which is presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, was delivered to Ethos Capital, Internet Society and Public Interest Registry posing a long list of questions regarding the future operation of the .org domain registry.
Among these questions, is what guarantee will be provided that the registry will not be relocated outside of the United States, which could put the domain name, widely used for U.S. based charities and non-profits, in a world where little control over anything at all would be preserved.
The letter is signed off by Ronald Wyden, United States Senator for Oregon, Richard Blumenthal, United States Senator from Connecticut, presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, United States Senator from Massachusetts, and Anna Eshoo United States Representative from California’s, all of which are democrats.
Answers are requested within about 15 days, by January 6th, 2020.
