[ale] Acquiring a registered but unused domain name?

I am part of a non-profit group, the National Federation of the Blind 
Computer Science special interest group. We'd like to make a web site at 
www.nfbcs.org. If you point a browser there, you get a 403 forbidden 
message. Doing a whois on nfbcs.org shows that it is registered but 
there is no meaningful contact info.

I am thinking maybe the domain is unused and if I could just contact the 
owner, they'd be willing to let us have it. Any ideas on how to go about 
that? The only thing I've tried so far is to send a message to 
root at nfbcs.org.
