Dear Glen, Dear Brian,
The Whois presentations given to the ccTLD meetings in Rome by Jean-Christophe Vignes was based on the CENTR working document, see http://www.wwtld.org/meetings/cctld/20040302.Rome-documents.html
1. the Data Protection in the European Union: http://europa.eu.int/comm/internal_market/privacy/index_en.htm which are citizen-oriented "What are your rights as a citizen?"
and two OECD documents:
http://www.oecd.org/dataoecd/46/38/2505946.pdf, Comparing Domain
Name Administration in OECD Countries, DSTI/ICCP/TISP(2002)11/FINAL
(8 Apr 2003),
also at CENTR website at http://www.centr.org/meetings/ga-21/OECD.pdf
Consumer Policy Considerations On The Importance Of Accurate And
Available Whois Data, DSTI/CP(2003)1/FINAL (2 Jun 2003), in English
also at CENTR website at
European Eunion is in the process of harmonization of the laws. All ccTLD registries withing European Union must comply with national law, and transposed EU directives.
Important is making consumers aware of their rights, and giving them easy access to exercise their rights.
The bulk access to the whois databases is not allowed in Europe.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions, Kind regards, Elisabeth
