Former ICANN CEO Rod Beckstrom commenting on .Org deal

Beckstrom posed arguments during forum last week.

On February 11, American University Washington College of Law held a program about the sale of .Org to private equity company Ethos Capital.

Former ICANN CEO Rod Beckstrom was in attendance, and he posed some good questions about the transaction. The video below starts playing at the point Beckstrom begins commenting:

After hearing of the deal, Beckstrom says, “I felt incredibly sad… I was just shocked. Not just because this non-profit asset was being monetized, but because of how it was handled.”

Beckstrom posed several questions, including the valuation of the deal and if ISOC/PIR are really operating in the public benefit, as required of non-profits.
