Hi Snorri,
how are you doing? I have not heard anything from you for quite a long time.

Yesterday, I discovered that the openid.dk domain registered by OpenID 
foundation Europe had expired and had been deactivated.
I have now managed to pay the invoice and get the domain reactivated.

However, I wonder about the situation of OpenID Europe Foundation in 
general. You have done an impressive job of aquiring the European and 
National Trademarks for OpenID as well as several national OpenID 
domains on behalf of the EU foundation, and it would be sad to see the 
result of these efforts vanish.

If there are no resources available to maintain OpenID Foundation 
Europe, maybe it is appropriate to consider how this IPR may be 
consolidated within the global OpenID Foundation (or alternatively at 
the national levels).

Best Regards,
Henrik Biering
OpenID-DK representative
