Registration data is collected when users register domain names. Privacy laws have an impact on how this data is treated. In many respects, current whois policy is inconsistent with privacy legislation, therefore policy must be reviewed and evolved. This is the context, this is why public access to whois data must change.

How people use and publish web sites, run mail servers, etc. are not issues that ICANN can take up.

This was supposedly why the current public access to all Whois data was
going to changed.
And if we are going to consider privacy laws, they must be viewed in

Lynn - ICANN is naturally limited to making policy related to the
registration of domain names and their function within the DNS. You are
proposing policy that extends beyond this scope by delving into how
various forms of content and intent affect consumers and consumer
behavior. This is naturally the area of government and national law, not
ICANN as a technical coordinator of the domain name system.

You are barking up a tree that the GNSO can't climb.

Individuals or legal entities who engage in commercial activities normally collect and process personally identifiable data.
As such, their contact information needs to be publicly available.
It is contrary to principles of good data privacy practices to exclude

data protection for this significant group who does not seem to have a

constituency representative in the current structure.

Nor do I. The last thing we need are more policies that ICANN not only

doesn't enforce, but actually can't. And I question the statement that

some registrars are verifying such a distinction. If so, I would think

there should be some examples - the specific registrars who are doing it and how they are doing it.
Also, I think the changes that Lynn and Chris are suggesting do not accurately represent the level of support and/or agreement of the

    I do not believe a distinction should be made.

    I would just like to add a comment that I feel these revisions
    achieve the balance needed to win a broad consensus of support.
    Some members have not been as vocal in our discussions and I do
    have a sense of whether the majority of the group is in agreement.
    Since we did not have a teleconference today, is it possible to
some kind of quick informal poll?

    Dear All,
    I have attached the draft final report for sub-group C with some
    revisions marked in red-line, which Lynn Goodendorf and I propose.

We believe these suggested changes are helpful to improve some of
the writing, accuracy and balance of the report.

    Dear all,
    Attached is the Final Report of Sub Group C, prepared by its
    Jon Bing.
    We agreed on this week's call to discuss any further - hopefully
    minor - changes to the report using this mailing list rather than
    a conference call.
    So please review this draft and circulate any comments on it to
    list. Please do use 'track changes' mode if you suggest changes to
    the document.
    We should expect to finalise this report next week and submit it
the Working Group. I will also be adding some basic information to
it about membership of the group and attendance. All the best, Maria
