The Electronic Freedom Foundation is raising an alarm.

"A growing list of organizations is urging the Internet Society (ISOC) to stop the sale of the Public Interest Registry (PIR)—the organization that manages the .ORG top-level domain—to private equity firm Ethos Capital. Our message is clear: the NGO community should have a voice in decisions affecting the future of .ORG."
