There is no agreement that one enters into when selecting a domain ending
with .org so I doubt it would be "breaking the law" to run a business out of
a .org  site.  I think that they are reserved for non profits is more of an
"understood" situation.  I worked for a very short time for a sleaze bag
lawyer who represented himself as a non-profit organization advocating
nursing home reform for seniors but really he was a high priced attorney who
did estate planning to help wealthy seniors get public medical assistance by
hiding their assets.  He used a .org domain name selected specifically so
people would be hooked into his organization before they realized that it
was not non profit.  I'd almost add him to the word of mouth list but I'd
definitely sign my name.  This site was set up for cowards.
