In this day and age, Copyright holders are demanding the capabilities to 
copyrights in manners that are not in the public interest. While terms, etc. 
enforcing the copyrights are primarily in the hands of government bodies - 
namely Congress in the United States, ICANN should not allow them to garner 
control over the domains of companies, individuals, and organizations without 
sufficient court requirement to do so. That is, Copyright holders should only 
able to break through the privacy shields with a court order and nothing less, 
and only be able to do so for specific legal purposes. They should not be able 
to garner control of domains in any manner as that would effectively hold the 
domain owner hostage to the whims of the Copyright holders. 

Please stand firm and continue requiring the Privacy Shields on the .NET TLDs 
these have uses far beyond the rights or needs of Copyright holders, including 
essential for the security of some (e.g. PJ at Groklaw.net).
