RE: [gnso-thickwhois-dt] a modest amendment to our charter point on "privacy and data protection"
Well if we can quickly agree on some standard for "rights," that's cool. We, and more importantly ICANN, cannot be the arbiter of them. My point is simply that we are not being asked to evaluate thick whois as a concept as it is already the norm with two exceptions but the relative merit of bringing everyone under the same regime, including whatever relative "rights impact assessment" that needs to be done for all PDPs. This does not preclude discussing thick whois generally or alternatives, etc. at a future date. This just doesn't seem me to be the time or place. -----Original Message----- From: owner-gnso-thickwhois-dt@xxxxxxxxx [mailto:owner-gnso-thickwhois-dt@xxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Avri Doria Sent: Saturday, October 13, 2012 2:56 PM To: Gnso-thickwhois-dt@xxxxxxxxx DT Subject: Re: [gnso-thickwhois-dt] a modest amendment to our charter point on "privacy and data protection" Hi, I am sorry to hear that you consider the Impact of Rights a distraction. However, the PDP process mandates that rights impact analysis be done. So this amendment is making explicit something that the new PDP process requires. Privacy is only one of the rights that needs to be protected. And Privacy rights only pertain to individuals, while the Freedom of Association pertains to associations of individuals, which are also subject to WHOIS and often exclude from protections since they are not natural persons. avri On 13 Oct 2012, at 14:27, Evan Leibovitch wrote: > > > On 13 October 2012 12:16, Jonathan Zuck <jzuck@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote: > Just seems like a discussion of "rights" is fraught with pitfalls given the > time it will take to define them worldwide.
