3.3 Public Access to Data on Registered Names

This section of the RAA has been left untouched, although it is well known to ICANN and its community that this contravenes several national and international laws.

See
http://ec.europa.eu/justice_home/fsj/privacy/docs/wpdocs/2003/wp76_en.pdf
and http://www.icann.org/correspondence/schaar-to-cerf-12mar07.pdf

Quoting this last letter: "Privacy issues stemming from the making available of personal data in the context of the operation of the WHOIS services should be solved through amendments to the registrar accreditation agreement that would offer at least to those registrars located in EU member countries to comply with EU data protection legislation in accordance with the basic principles of data protection and privacy."

How can ICANN justify that it forces, by contract, other parties to break the law ?

Thank you

Patrick Vande Walle
