2. A number of notable figures and major organizations, including the Apache Software Foundation, are publicly speaking out against ICANN's sale of .org to Ethos Capital. Many are concerned its new owner will not protect the interests of non-profit foundations. In a statement, the Apache Software Foundation called on ICANN to stop the sale and "ensure that the .org registry remains in the hands of a body capable of governing neutrally and with sensitivity to the issues that are unique to the non-profit business sector." Meanwhile, Drew DeVault urges the public to write to the California and Virginia attorney general offices to investigate, as well as file form 13909 with the IRS to review ICANN, ISOC, and PIR's non-profit statuses. While DeVault provides a template for the letter, he cautions that interested readers should rewrite it as to copy and paste would be illegal. Finally, as previously reported, many have signed a "Save .ORG" petition addressed to ICANN, ISOC, and PIR, including the Wikimedia Foundation and the EFF.
