This comment was posted by Dan Boresjo (firstname.lastname@example.org) on n.p.m.general today: -8<- Can anyone here tell me what kind of organisation mozilla.org is? Is it a corporation, association, charity or whatever? In what state/nation is it registered? I tried searching the www.mozilla.org website for registration details in the hope of finding a a constitution, articles of association or incorporation etc and found nothing. Is it then just a netscape operation - ie when I see a copyright notice identifying mozilla.org as IP owner is that (legally) the same as Netscape Corporation? -8<- After trying to search the site myself, I could not find anything either. I think we need a statement that answers the above questions. Call it About mozilla.org or something, and link it from http://www.mozilla.org/mozorg.html
I pointed a recent poster asking something similar at the 1.0 Guide, http://mozilla.org/start/1.0/guide/ . Not sure that answers this question, though. What was being thought of as mozilla.org when whatever it is started calling itself that originally, back in 1998? "mozilla.org and the Mozilla Organization are consensual hallucinations." "mozilla.org is a domain name registered by jwz initially, and we kept using the name out of habit."
I think http://website-beta.mozilla.org/about/ explains the question nicely
