I would Support this model as it protects a wider range of companies and
individuals and law enforcement can still get this info through court orders
and so can lawers on behave of intellectual property rights holders


OPoC, which I discussed
<http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1895,2061642,00.asp> in a recent column, is
backed by many (self-styled, perhaps) privacy advocates, and is similar to
GoDaddy's DomainsByProxy model: The contact information is no longer that of
the actual domain owner, but some third party with a code that allows them
to contact the actual owner. Crucially, OPoC, as the ICANN report says,
"does not include a mechanism for access to Whois data by, for example, law
enforcement agencies or intellectual property rights holders."
