Dear Council

I am a trade mark practitioner based in New Zealand.  I act for a range of New 
Zealand and multi-national trade mark owners.  

I confirm that I support Motion 2 before the Council, namely 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.

I do NOT support Motions 1 or 3 before the Council.

The Whois system is vital to the enforcement of trade mark owners' rights. I 
use it to identify the registrants of domain names where a client has concerns 
the registrant may be a cyber-squatter so that appropriate steps may be taken 
to ensure the domain name is vested in the name of the appropriate owner.

It is therefore vital that contractual obligations are retained which require 
registrars to display accurate and complete domain name ownership and contact 
details for domain name holders.

Kind regards

Andrew Matangi
New Zealand
