Reading the new AA (
http://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Articles_of_Association/New ) there are
many occurences of "person" not further specifying whether this is
restricted to natural persons or extends to corporate personhood / juristic
persons, i.e. certain types of companies. (Maybe I have overlooked this, or
companies are never persons under UK law, or it is intentional that
companies can become members?). Looking at 17. it seems as if companies are
(1) they die or cease to exist;
(as natural persons never cease to exist without dying).

Could you please clarify on this?

thank you,
