    Nelson Mandela Foundation Trust has won a cybersquatting dispute over 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.

    It filed the dispute against the domain name back in February.

    The owner of the domain name said that he registered it for free software he distributes and that it stands for “Micro Advanced Normalized Database Exploring for Long Activities.”
