ICANN - Jawad Ahmed Says Respect Our Privacy
Dear ICANN – Regarding the proposed rules governing companies that provide WHOIS privacy services (as set forth in the Privacy and Policy Services Accreditation Issues Policy document): Please respect our privacy. There is no reason to make such information available so easily. Anyone will be able to find out personal home addresses etc, including criminals and competitors. At the minimum a court order must be requested before protected information such as our home address be released. I urge you not to make this change as doing so would be a flagrant violation of our privacy and a step back in the post-Internet era. Private information should be kept private. Thank you.
