ICANN to Address Unrestricted Access to Whois Data

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on June 13, 2005

ICANN Watch reports: “At the Luxembourg ICANN meeting, the US Government is organizing a 4-hour session of the Governmental Advisory Committee (GAC) on how public display of Whois data supports “combating illegal activities on the Internet.” Perhaps sensing that time is running out on unrestricted access to Whois data, the US GAC representative and US-based business/IPR interests have organized the meeting to propagandize the idea that compulsory, public display of domain name registration data and intrusive measures to enforce the accuracy of the data should be retained.”
