I am trademark counsel for General Motors Corporation. I understand that
you are considering making changes to the Whois database and have three
motions before you. I ask that you vote for Motion 2 and reject Motions 1
and 2. As a trademark owner, we are certainly concerned about the impact
of abuses of our valuable intellectual property. But inexorably tied to
that concern is a concern about the impact of those abuses on consumers.
As a trademark owner, we have an important responsibility to protect
consumers from confusion caused by unauthorized users of our trademarks.
Having easy access to accurate Whois information is critical to addressing
those unauthorized uses.
