RE: [gnso-dow123] Changes to OPOC proposal: deletion instead of unmasking
Precisely. Nothing I suggest (or anyone in the TF suggests) can change the operation of legal process. If a party with legitimate reason obtains a subpoena or court order compelling disclosure of information by someone who holds that information, the court order controls (if it has jurisdiction).
If our terms of reference were broad enough to allow changing of the data collected, I would put my suggestion in at an earlier point -- that a registrant could opt at the time of registration not to leave any personally-connected contact information (and thus nothing that could be subpoenaed later) and by doing so risk the cancellation of his name upon a legal complaint.
Under the current terms of reference, all I can propose is that parties seeking unwanted disclosure should go through legal process rather than using informal requests for data correction or pressure on proxy services.

Wendy, a question for you on this idea -- are you suggesting such an option would exist, unless there is a court order/or other legitimate legal request? In that case, isn't the registry or registrar still required to provide any information that they have, as a ISP would have to do?
