Dear ICANN –

Privacy is a right and a necessity. In today's society, abusive regimes have both prevented internet access and prosecuted the individuals or groups doing so. Government and associations have used questionable and other means later judged illegal to prosecute or harm individuals without regard for privacy, legality, or rights. Therefore I am writing to you today.

Regarding the proposed rules governing companies that provide WHOIS privacy services (as set forth in the Privacy and Policy Services Accreditation Issues Policy document):

I urge you to respect internet users' rights to privacy and due process.
- Everyone deserves the right to privacy.
- No one’s personal information should be revealed without a court order, regardless of whether the request comes from a private individual or law enforcement agency.

Private information should be kept private. Thank you.
