A. In which way can privacy sensitive information of private persons be 
secured, while law enforcers have at the same time a proportional access which 
does justice to the international complications that Whois registrations bring 
with it for law enforcement.
2. How can Whois registrations become more false proof?


How the hypothesis could be falsified:

The better the data in Whois is and a proportional access is assured the less 
the need for strict rules for access will be.

Type of Study Needed:
An inventory of requirements on the privacy side as well as on the enforcement 
side, a comparison of such and conclusions which lead to a middle way.
What is needed to make Whois registrations better and how can they be checked?

Data that needs to be collected:
Research into: proportionality; needs of law enforcers; what data is necessary 
in Whois?; what data needs to be checked/checkable at registration?; which 
terms of contract on breaches of contract, e.g. on misuse between 
registrars/registrees and costumer have to be in place to make the internet a 
safer palce for end users?

Population to be surveyed:
Law enfocers; data protection agencies; registrars/registrees; end users 

Sample Size:
