The Register: ICANN delays .org sell off after California’s attorney general intervenes at last minute, tears non-profit a new one over sale. “ICANN has again delayed a decision on the sale of the .org registry, pushing the issue off for another month multiple sources with knowledge of Thursday’s meeting, have told The Register. The organization’s board of directors was due to decide [Thursday] on whether to approve the $1.13bn sale of the .org domain from the Internet Society to private equity firm Ethos Capital, but a last-minute letter from California’s attorney general Xavier Becerra appears to have upended the plan.”
