I recently read that ICANN is considering doing away with WHOIS information 
protection services such as whoisguard for commercial websites. I believe this 
to be a step in the wrong direction and ask that this protection not be 

These services protect small businesses by helping them be free from spam and 
malicious activity that would otherwise result from their private personal 
information being in public. These services also protect people from 
retribution and allow them to be more anonymous online, a key tenet of the 
internet.  This information should only be given when the request is 
accompanied by a court order. 

Thank you for your time,

James Gealy
