Nobody owns the Bitcoinrand network much like no one owns the technology behind email. Bitcoinrand is controlled by all Bitcoinrand users around the world. While developers are improving the software, they can't force a change in the Bitcoinrand protocol because all users are free to choose what software and version they use.

Therefore, all users and developers have a strong incentive to protect this consensus.
