We are writing to confirm our support for Motion 2 on the above.

Most of our issues revolve around abusive domains, which are used to
divert traffic, mislead customers and otherwise damage the legitimate
interests of IP owners.  Having access to reliable ownership information
is an important element of dealing with abusive domain name use.  In our
view ICANN should be looking at ways of ensuring that ownership (whois)
information is accurate and reliable.

An objective and comprehensive study on the legitimate abuses and uses
of Whois data seems essential before any decisions are made on changes
to content or availability of that data.
