Re: [gnso-thickwhois-dt] a modest amendment to our charter point on "privacy and data protection"
Hi, In sense though ww will also be talking about how thick whois is to be done by all registries. Both in the new gTLDs and the incumbents, even those already doing thick. So this affects every Registry, every Registrar and every Registrant. And there are, in my view, jurisdictional implications in Thick Whois that are different from Thin Whois. Most of these center around the fact that once the Registry also has the Whois info as opposed to just the Registrar, people in Canada, e.g., no longer have the data privacy, consumer etc rights they have in Canada, because someone can base demands etc on the laws of the Registry's country of business as well. avri On 14 Oct 2012, at 07:38, Jonathan Zuck wrote: > > Of course those same countries have consumer protection laws, the enforcement > of which rely on identifying the offender.
