Organization files cybersquatting complaint under UDRP with World Intellectual Property Organization.
Nelson Mandela Foundation Trust has filed a cybersquatting complaint against the domain name Mandela.org.
The organization was established in 1999 when Nelson Mandela stepped down as President of South Africa. It was created for Mandela to do charitable work such as building schools, HIV/AIDS work and research. It now also handles the legacy of Mandela.
It uses the domain name NelsonMandela.org.
A Brazilian man owns Mandela.org. Prior to that, the domain name was owned by domain name investment company Internet REIT.
For a long time Mandela.org has resolved to a scarcely populated website that says it is under construction.
