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?

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
