Support for Motion #2
I believe the GNSO Council should adopt Motion 2 (supported by the International Trademark Association, among others), and reject Motions 1 and 3. Public availability of WhoIs information is critically important to the ability of trademark owners to enforce their legal rights against those who may infringe those rights and attempt to free-ride off the commercial investment trademark owners have made in their brands. Thank you for your consideration. <http://www.kilpatrickstockton.com/> William M.
