Signatures of four U.S. Senators who are questioning the deal to sell .org, including Elizabeth Warren

Four Lawmakers sent a letter with questions about the sale of .org to Ethos Capital.

Three U.S. Senators and a U.S. Representative have sent a letter to Ethos Capital, Internet Society and Public Interest Registry questioning the decision to sell .org to Ethos.

Ron Wyden, D-Ore., Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., with Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif. sent the letter that includes nine questions about the proposed sale.

Among the group’s concerns are:

  • Censorship
  • The potential that .org will move jurisdictions outside the United States
  • How prices will be controlled
  • How the proposed .org stewardship council will work, and if it will have veto power of decisions such as pricing

The Senators and Respresentative also want the registry transfer request and answers to ICANN’s latest questions to be made public.
