The Whois system is important for trademark owners because it is used daily by 
law enforcement, businesses and consumers to manage domain names, perform due 
diligence, protect intellectual property rights, and locate and contact the 
true owners of problematic web sites. 
In many cases, free open access to domain name ownership information is a 
prerequisite for taking swift legal action that can prevent Internet fraud and 
other schemes that confuse and deceive the public in the Internet marketplace.
I propose that ICANN conduct an objective and comprehensive study on the 
legitimate abuses and uses of Whois data â before making policy changes that 
may permanently alter the structure of the domain name and Whois system.
