Dear ICANN –

Regarding the proposed rules governing companies that provide WHOIS
privacy services (as set forth in the Privacy and Policy Services
Accreditation Issues Policy document):

I urge you to respect internet users' rights to privacy and due process.
- Everyone deserves the right to privacy.
- No one’s personal information should be revealed without a court
  order, regardless of whether the request comes from a private
  individual or law enforcement agency.

Private information should be kept private. Thank you.

Miroslav Straka

"The limited value of this change is manifestly outweighed by the risks
to website owners who will suffer a higher risk of harassment,
intimidation and identity theft. The ability to speak anonymously
protects people with unpopular or marginalized opinions, allowing them
to speak and be heard without fear of harm. It also protects
whistleblowers who expose crime, waste, and corruption."
