[gnso-reg-sgc] Revised language on commercial/noncommercial
Replace the first and second paragraphs under "Commercial or Non-Commercial Activities" with the following: Commercial or Non-Commercial Activities An alternate view proposed a further distinction between commercial and non-commercial registrants. Under that proposal, only natural persons engaged in noncommercial activity would receive data protection. Supporters of the alternate view argued that data protection does not extend to natural persons engaged in commercial activities. This proposal failed to achieve broad support, however. Adding a commercial/noncommercial distinction was rejected by some for reasons of principle, as they believe that data protection should apply to all natural persons regardless of the activities in which they are engaged. Additionally, some cited the impracticality of implementing such a distinction. The qualification of what is a commercial activity may vary between the legal areas within a jurisdiction, and it may vary between jurisdictions. It is also a gradual and dynamic distinction in the sense that activities may shift from non-commercial to commercial over time, and a single registrant may combine both activities in the same domain. Those who reject the commercial/noncommercial distinction tend to support Option 1 below. Others wanted to draw the commercial vs. non-commercial distinction as set forth in Option 2 below. Option 1 would seem to have broader consensus support than the Option 2. An alternate view also rejects Option 1, arguing that legal persons also should have the right to shield certain data from publication. ============== This language is clearer, and applies the language about "support" and "alternate views" to the draft. It also reflects the fact (which has become evident in the posts of the past few hours) that some registrars do not support Option 1.
